I really love frog legs for it’s succulent and “sweet” flesh flavours. It’s almost like a tiny little free range chicken or malay/kampong chicken. Asian descent, especially east asian such China, Korea and Japan is the most frog consummers country. Frog leg called swikee or “water’s chicken” in Indonesia. Swikee soup is stewed frog in hot, sour and spicy frog leg with fermented soy bean taucho that populer in Purwodadi, Central Java. You can find the recipe here. Another popular frog cuisine in Indonesia is butterred frog leg or kodok goreng mentega in Bahasa Indonesia. I’ve been posted the buttered frog leg recipe here.
I just know that French had it’s own frog leg dish too.They had a freched stly frog (Note : just known about the french lamb rack recently). This simply treatment of frog leg make a fancy and cute looking frog leg. you shoud make a circle cut to the lower end of the femur or leg bone and pulled the meat to the other end, forgive my instruction then watch the video of making frenched frog leg here.
I served the Sesame crusted frenched frog leg with Spinach and Feta Cheese Stuffing Canelloni, creamy spinach puree and a little of chili oil. Playing and combining lot’s of texture and flavour is the secret of french cuisine. The sesame crustes is perfectly crispy and the frog leg meat is still juicy and succlulent, nothing possibly better than that. Instead of roasting the the frog leg, you can even deep fried, just make sure that you use enough amount of oil to completely submerged entire frog leg.
