Frog legs.......




Has anyone prepared or eaten them?
I ordered them once at a French restaurant, when they came I couldn't eat them, so my Dad did.

Our favorite Oriental buffet has them lightly fried with salt pepper and some jalapeno slices in the mix. VERY good!

Frogs legs, when cooked properly are very good. They don't, however, taste like chicken. The texture if very similar to chicken. But the flavor is somewhere between chicken and clams.

The problem with frogs legs is that if they are overcooked, they can be very tough indeed. If you purchase them from your local grocer's freezer, try saute'ing in a little butter or olive oil, with garlic. Don't be alarmed if they twitch. The whole muscle is intact as a complete leg. Again, cook until just done. Do not overcook.

I've had them at several places, and have cooked quite a few in my time as well. Usually breaded and fried. In recent years, though, I'm just not so keen on them.

I like frog legs a lot. They are becoming more popular around here and, like someone else said, they are awesome on the Asian buffet! I also agree that the texture is like chicken but there is a pleasant mild clam taste. Give them a try, Kayelle!

Toooo funny! My "Uncle" Dick used to ask me if I'd like frog legs for dinner when the family visited a favorite restaurant! I didn't believe anyone really ate them until I grew up! I've never tried them but after these posts I'm willing to try! Thanks!
