Skun is the name of a small village in Kampong Cham Province on the transit between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. The region gets its big reputation thanks to its spider market. Seasoned and deep fried, the spiders are put on hundreds of plates, forming the most terrifying mounds for those of arachnophobia. Of course, nothing to fear! On their sides, you can also see other insects of the same unfortunate fate, like locusts (well seasoned and roast, they are nothing more “terrible” than our shrimp).
Should you wish to integrate more and get a bit more protein in our diet based on insects, an attempt to taste will not be too daring! Make sure you have good stomach, of course!
