This is not a recipe for Buffalo wings. Cajuns use all of the available

food to nourish their bodies. So instead of chicken wings, I am using

frog legs. Frogs are plentiful in the swamps of Louisiana. People say

that frog legs taste like chicken. What do you think?

9 pair Frog Legs

Egg Wash (see previous post)

Seafood Breading (see previous post)

6 tablespoons Butter

¼ cup Crystal Hot Sauce

1 teaspoon Granulated Garlic

Preheat a deep fryer to 350 degrees. Separate frog legs and dip

in egg wash. Coat frog legs in seafood breading. Shake off excess

breading and place in deep fryer. Fry in two or more batches to avoid

overcrowding. When frogs are golden brown, remove from fryer and

drain on paper towels. Place the frog legs in a medium bowl. Pour

sauce on top and toss to coat frog legs. You can adjust the heat of this

dish by adding or subtracting hot sauce to taste.




I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.

  1. Thanks for this post. I don’t know a large number of links to forums but my friends seem to be able to spend a lot of time on them that’s for sure.
