Sauteed Frog's Legs With Garlic and Shallots

Recipe by ratherbeswimmin
READY IN: 30mins




  • If necessary, prepare the frog's legs by trimming the spines and tips of the feet; wash and dry them.
  • Roll the legs in the seasoned flour and shake off the excess.
  • Melt half of the butter in a large skillet over high heat (the frog legs will brown better if they are not crowded).
  • When the butter stops sputtering, add half of the legs and saute until browned, 1-2 minutes.
  • Turn and brown on the other side; the butter should be quite brown to add flavor.
  • Remove the legs to a warmed plate, wipe out the skillet and saute the remaining legs with butter in the same way.
  • Remove the legs to the plate with the first batch.
  • Return the pan to the heat, add in the shallots, garlic, and parsley; saute, stirring, for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  • Replace the frog legs and toss together over medium heat for another 30 seconds until very hot.
  • The shallots should be slightly crunchy, in contrast to the tender frog legs.
