Frog meat is literally named “field chicken” in Mandarin, which is indeed a more than appropriate name. For those who hasn’t tasted frog meat before, It does taste very similar to chicken, with a slightly soft and springy texture.
Ginger and scallion is a combo one can’t go wrong with! This aromatic combo conceals the slightly fishy flavour. And when paired with the succulent frog legs, makes for an EXCITING and DELICIOUS meal. Best served with piping hot porridge!
Using the same sauce and marinate, you can also substitute the frog legs with chicken, fish or even other meats.
