This is a very easy and unusual recipe. I serve these frog legs with basmati rice and a good green salad.

  • Drain the frog legs well, reserving marinade. Season with salt and pepper, and toss with cornstarch to coat.

  • Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the legs until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes per side. While the legs are cooking, bring the marinade to a simmer in a small saucepan, and simmer for 3 minutes.

  • To serve, pour sauce over the frog legs and sprinkle with sliced green onion.

This recipe rocks not that I cook frog legs that much. The only thing I suggest is cook longer than the suggested time on each side. I did at least 4 to 5 on each side. I served with a green salad and brown rice. Read More

I would not try them. Was NOT going to happen!! But my husband ate them. After he got over the appearance (they look like mini-people with extremely muscular calves) he said they "werent bad". Read More

An awesome way to cook frog legs - I made no changes and we really enjoyed them. I did add some cornstarch-water slurry to the marinade/sauce while simmering but that was just because we prefer it thicker. I have a whole freezer full of chicken but ignored it all when the grocer had these babies in on special - frog is a firmer white flesh like chicken breast with a yummy seafood flavor and I'd suggest trying this recipe whether you have "spare frog legs for some reason" or not!

Just tried it tonight incredibly easy to do and sooo good. I used Tamari sauce instead of Soya sauce it tastes the same. And instead of using all of the marinade for the legs I reserved about 1/4 of a cup of it to use for the sauce in the end. I did reduce it like the recipe asked. Read More

ROCK YOUR SOCKS OFF FOR SURE! Definitely marinate for at least an hour! I used an egg-flour-egg-Panko crumb coating on ours. Awesome! So crunchy and tender! Time is approximate: it depends on your exact cooking temperature and the size of the frog legs. Mine were Jumbo and took about 3 minutes per each of the four sides (if you only turn them once they will take longer per side). I like them browned all over. Triple the sauce use 1/3 to marinate (throw this away after use) Use other 2/3rds to make dipping sauce by adding cornstarch a little at a time. Will ABSOLUTELY make again and again! Read More
