Witchetty grubs are a traditional food of Australian Indigenous people and are considered a delicacy by many. They can be eaten raw or cooked, and are a good source of protein, fat, and nutrients. The head of the grub is never eaten. Here’s a simple recipe for cooking witchetty grubs.


  • Witchetty grubs
  • Water to boil
  • Salt to taste
  • Butter or oil (optional)


  1. Collect fresh witchetty grubs from the roots of certain trees, such as the Acacia tree.
  2. Clean the witchetty grubs by gently rubbing them with a cloth or rinsing them with water.
  3. In a Pan boil water and add a pinch of salt. Add the witchetty grubs to the pot of boiling water and cook for about 10 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
  4. Drain the water and serve the witchetty grubs with a little butter or oil, if desired.
  5. You can also grill the witchetty grubs on a barbecue or in a pan for a few minutes until they are cooked through and crispy.
  6. Enjoy your witchetty grubs as a snack or as part of a meal.
  7. Some people find the taste and texture of witchetty grubs to be similar to that of chicken or prawns. However, others may find the idea of eating insects unappetizing, so it’s not for everyone. The head of the grub is never eaten
