The worm pieces were mixed with chopped green onion (scallion) and thin slices of an onion, and fried without oil in a pan. No salt or spices beyond the onions were used.
Results: the resulting pancake had the appearance of browned pancake with onion slices visible and an occasional small worm outline visible.
Taste Tester 1 (Nancy) found that upon eating, the worm outline browned on the outside of the pancake was distressing and the pancake was too chewy. There was no taste, outside of a faint taste of onion.
Taste Tester 2 (Kurt) found the pancake sample too bland.
Taste Tester 3 (Ichi) found the sample tasteless, but the chewy nature was acceptable to a Japanese person (used to squid, etc.)
