Eating frog is like making out with your sister, you ‘can’ do it but you never feel good about.

Pok….. I really need to try those when I go to BKK. Where’s a good place? (btw i try to avoid road-side ones, due to health reasons…..coz it’s the same in Indonesia/my wife’s place).

For us Chinese here, we cook them in porridge or soup. Typical. I’d really love to try fried ones.

ILF, nice catch btw!

Each frog costs a good 5-10 bucks here depending on the size.

I like frog legs but not sure about preparing/cleaning them. :quest:
If you want to try some fried frog legs, just go to some good Chinese Buffet and a lot of times they have it for you.

These wild frogs are just so much better tasting than the tame frogs you get in a Chinese buffet. Frog legs are very good eating for those that have never tried them for the grossed out factor of not wanting to eat frogs. Trust me. Kind of taste like a mixture of fish, chicken and quail. That’s my opinion anyways. I never would have thought that carp eggs were good until my dad had me try them when I was younger. I love em. Better tasting than regular eggs.

Oh and the frog legs are almost gone. Yummy!

I agree, they do sort of taste like a gamey mix between chicken and fish. That’s why I don’t like them. Sort of like chicken soaked in Swamp water. Just leaves more for you I guess. LOL!

Cool.

How do you catch them? Do you need to make a trap, or just use your hands?

Do you eat the entire frog, or just the legs only part.

Ive never had them before so I have no idea, but Ive heard about it and see them at the store sometimes.

I like them, but unfortunately they are not popular around here, in other parts of Spain they are, I have had them fried, and also in a bit spicy homemade tomato sauce, really nice.

It might look extrange, but the last time I had them was in Uk visiting a client, they were included in a seafood dish.

Continuing with things many might find a bit disgusting, I also like land snails, they are really nice mostly for the sauce made for them, they are not much tasty, like crayfish they are served normally in the same sauce made with bacon, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, onions, dried red peppers and some other ingredients I cannot remember now, they are not slimmy, they are kept for about a month bathing them with water and salt every week.

You take a frog gig like this one below and attach it by bolt and nut to a wooden pole about 6 to 8 ft long.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-TINE-FROG-FISHING-GIG-FORK-SPEAR-7-/200808384931?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ec11cc9a3

You then go to a pond, creek, lake or any water area and shine the banks with a bright light that has some useable spill. The light blinds them so they stay put so you can get close enough to gig them. I typically aim right behind the head or sometimes middle of the back if they are sitting on a larger rock. They will typically sit at the waters edge on the bank. They prefer dirt banks but will sit gravel banks as well as rocks. It just depends on what the creek or pond has which is mostly where I go around these parts. I have gigged quite a few this year.

Oh and typically the bigger the frog the smarter and wiser it will be. Any little noise will send the big boys in the water well before you get close enough to try and gig them. But if they do jump, you can usually wait about 5-10 min and it will be back normally in about the exact same spot or close to it. I have seen frogs return to the exact same spot several times. Last nite I gigged a frog and there was another close by that caught me by surprise. I just got my light on him and dropped my gig to the ground about 15 ft away from him, so I could turn my gig in the ready position to gig in and the vibration from the ground sent the frog in the water. I later went back and got him. He was in about the same vicinity. A very wise frog, but not wise enough with a bright light in his eyes. Without a light in their eyes, frogs have tremendous vision. They rely on vision and ears to allow them to escape predators to grow big. So that’s why a big frog is the smart one. They know what it takes to survive.

Since I’ve been in China, I’ve yet to eat some frog. I am really wondering what it tastes like….

If you could post a recipe I’d be forever grateful haha! I can probably get the frogs probably cut and prepared at the nearby market, but I would like to know what goes good with them Smile

I just always fry the frogs I get in vegetable oil. After I clean them I let them soak in salt water for usually overnite. I then dip each frog right out of the salt water and into some cornmeal breading mix with spices. The best mix I have found is Andy’s. I use Louisiana brand mix sometimes as well, but Andy’s is the best in my mind.


Anyone of those will work great. They also make a cajun style.

This is the truth. It’s kind of ironic but a lot of traditional asian, esp chinese dishes are best cooked in Australia or even the US where the ingredients still exist in the wild. The pollution and over-catching in china is so bad that non-farm critters are not just available for purchase.

I ate at a local restaurant here that had a seafood buffet on Friday evenings with frog legs. Well all I will say is that they sucked and leave it at that. I couldn’t even eat them that’s how bad they tasted. They were like bland with no taste. The ones I get in the wild and fix are perfect. I ate all of the frogs I got already. Dang they were good. I love em.
