One of my friends is Sephardi. He eats locusts, sometimes.

I know that locusts are categorized as שרצים - "creeping things" and are not in the same category as the other kosher animals that need to be ruminants and with split hooves.

But I wanted some clarity on whether they are automatically considered parve, as well and if the reason is because they are in their own category.


Fish and locusts are Pareve. Shulchan Arukh YD 87:3


See the question I asked: here And see the answers, quoting beginning of Rambam הלכות שחיטה and that their ‘killing’ process is comparable to that of a fish. And we know fish are in a fish category and are nonetheless pareve. I would assume that carries over.
