Could you tell me the blessing said on grasshoppers?

There are several species of grasshopper which are Kosher, and the blessing recited would be shehakol ni'hya bidvaro.


However, I hope you're not thinking of eating any! We no longer have the tradition as to which ones are kosher (unless you are a member of the Yemenite or certain other Sephardi communities).


[Ed. note: also see "Are locusts kosher?"]
