Mitzvah #137 - Don't eat meat with milk

One may not eat meat and milk that were cooked together.

One who eats either the meat or the milk deserves 39 lashes in Bet Din.

By Rabbinic decree, meat and milk that were mixed together but not cooked are also forbidden to be eaten, but one may derive benefit from the mixture.

By Rabbinic decree poultry is considered to be meat and may not be eaten with milk.

Kosher grasshoppers, eggs and fish may be cooked and eaten with milk.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Do not cook a kid in it's mother's milk" (Shmot 34:26)
