Frog Legs . . .

<p />Marinated in Lawry's Tequila Lime Marinade for about 18 hours. Grilled at 700* with a couple of 1 1/4" ribeyes. They were OK. They were cooked just right, still moist yet done. I was expecting that rush I get when eating some exceptional Calamari with lemon or Oysters Papadeaux . . . I am just wondering if frog legs are best fried or "pan flamed" . . . What do you think, RRP?

    djm5x9,
    Like Cornfed says, they do look wonderful. I think you cooked them perfectly. My guess is that the marinade you used was on for WAY too long. An acidic marinade like that, and that gentle lean meat was knocked silly after 18 hours... and took on a whole different texture. Me be thinkin' a few hours in the refrigerator max with that marinade on that mellow meat, and it would be a different leap frog match.[p]Ya think??

    Nature Boy:[p]I know what you mean about over marinating . . . Interestingly, the meat did not pick up much of the marinate flavor. Frog legs will be done again . . .

    Fritz:[p]Heaven . . .[p]You come down to Atlanta this fall and I will point you in the right direction. There version of Oysters Rockefeller. You have a seafood house called Papadeaux's your way? An old Greek boy made good in Nu Auleans . . . Got a good, consistant restaurant.

    Nature Boy,
    After exhibiting at countless food shows I have learned the hard way about over-marinating. We always serve jerked shrimp. Shrimp may be expensive, but I only have to look to know that they are done (pink & curled). Marinate your fish & crustaceans for no more than an hour for best results IMOHO / $.02 Applewife

  • Nature Boy, I heard his moanful cry late last night all the way across Valdese. Doesn't take much to get across Valdese but it was there. Pooooorrr Mr Toad, He was just comming off a grand high with Toadfest and all and now to see such a visual.
    I will probably have to go over and console him--And help him drink a Chimay or two.
