Cuisse de grenouille à la Provencale -Frog Legs Provencale - 9/10/08
Frogs' legs are one of the better-known delicacies of French and Chinese cuisine. Frogs' Legs is definitely not a popular dish in the U.S. In France this is a classic that you can find on the menu in a lot of Bistros or Mom and Pop's restaurants. I am thankful that Frogs' legs is also a Chinese delicacy and they can be found in most of the Asian supermarkets in the frozen section. I have seen 99 Ranch Market sell live frogs but I would be too scare to kill and de-skinned them! Frozen is perfect for me.
Don't believe people when they said that Frogs' legs taste just like chicken. Not even close! they taste like frog's meat. The texture of Frog's is a delicate taste unique to Frog's leg. Here it is cooked with butter, garlic and parsley. You definitely can not go wrong with this combination.
This dish can also be served as appetizers!
