Default Frog Legs Recipe?

I'm looking for a good recipe to cook up some fresh frog legs... prefer to not fry. Only have 4 sets due to my lack of proper gigging abilities.

The one on the far left was the first one and he didn't look small until I stuck the other ones. Let a lot of smaller ones go and missed several the same size as the largest one. Our pond is loaded with huge tadpoles right now.

Never had any other way than fried. Give them to someone who will eat them fried? Sorry no help here.

This was the first thing I thought about...I've blackened fish, chicken, and steak, so no reason it wouldn't be good.

I would marinate in Ragin Blaze fajita seasoning then bake in oven or cook on grill with veggies as pictured below.

(not my pic but kudos to the original poster )

Yea I know. He looked bigger in the water After gigging him I let several of his little buddies go so they could grow.

I've had them cooked in a skillet with some onions and peppers and they turned out pretty good.

Frog legs get pretty tender and can fall apart on a grill so I use one of those fish baskets made for grilling fish that has the top that closes down. I marinade in anything from Italian dressing to garlic and olive oil. I use kosher salt and pepper to season but it think I need to order some Ragin Blaze!

She one in a million for sure. Took me 3 and finally marrying a true Cajun to get this one. About the only thing that scares her is spiders. She had a water moccasin between her and a frog the other night and waited for the snake to move out of the way before grabbing the frog.

This is what she looks like during the week.

Here's a quick dish I cooked this evening with the backs and fronts of the frogs in my picture.

1 1/2 stock butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup frozen vegetable seasoning mix
12 oz can of tomatoe paste
Water
Cajun seasoning
18 frog backs and fronts

Make a light roux with the butter and flour
Add vegetable seasoning mix and saute until translucent
Add tomatoe paste and enough water to make a thick gravy
Season with Cajun seasoning, to taste
Simmer for 10 min and then add frogs
Simmer for 40 min stirring very gently a couple of times
Turn heat off and let stand for 30 min and serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

I have pictures but can't get them to download from my phone. Dunno why, the ones in my previous post did.

The only negative thing about eating the fronts is, you end up with a pile of small bones.
