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 have fresh frogs, you will need to remove the legs and skin them to prepare for cooking. Fresh frog legs are definitely the best.

Frog legs have a texture similar to chicken and a very mild flavor. Therefore, I prefer a simple method of preparation so as not to overpower the delicate flavor of the frog. The recipe below couldn't be simpler and the results are well worth the effort.

  • 1 dozen frog legs (allow 3 to 4 per person, depending on size)
  • 1 cube butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled, crushed and chopped
  • 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, over low heat. Salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.

  • Yields: 4 servings
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
