Frog Legs in Garlic Butter

Frog legs are a wonderful delicacy to enjoy for the festive occasion. They may be served as an appetizer for a special meal, or as a side dish as well as a main course.

If you are prone to fishing, consider finding a nearby pond with a population of bullfrogs to catch your own. It is easiest to catch them at night with a frog gig or net and a flashlight. The light from a flashlight will temporarily paralyze them so that they can be captured easily. Once caught, you will need to remove the legs and skin them to prepare for cooking. Fresh frog legs are definitely the best.

If you are fortunate enough to find some fresh frog legs in the market, that will do. Simply follow the instructions below for a delicious meal.

  • 1 dozen frog legs (allow 3 to 4 per person, depending upon the size)
  • ¼ lb. butter
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat. Add the garlic and frog legs. Simmer for about 6 to 8 minutes per side, depending upon size. Salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately with rice, vegetables, or whatever you may fancy and enjoy.
  • Yields: 3 servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
