Not your average Fried Frog Legs

The Pilot and I were in the mood for something a little different tonight. With the help of some wonderful frog legs from Quality Seafood, the pilot thought we might find them at HEB, and some inspiration from the pilot’s new favorite show Duck Dynasty we braved making Frog Legs for the first time.

On our 1-10 scale we gave them an 8.

Soak 1 pound of frog legs in 2 cups of  buttermilk…They can be soaked in beer if you prefer…for 20 Minutes.

Remove the Frog Legs from the buttermilk and pat them dry. Season them Cajun Seasoning and a little bit of cracked pepper. (The dryer they are the better the seasoning sticks.

After they are seasoned cover the frog legs in flour.

Then drop them in an olive oil bath, 1/2 and inch in the bottom of the pan and 1/2 a stick of butter. Make sure the Oil is MEDIUM hot.

Pan Fry them until they are lightly browned on each side.

After they are browned add them to a pot of:

Cook: 1 whole small garlic, 1 cup of mushrooms, 3 cups of white wine, and the oil and butter sauce that you have already cooked together.

For 30 minutes on 300 put the pot in the oven and let it simmer. Pull them from their sauce and serve them…we did with mashed potatoes.
