Hey, I usually fry them too, but they don’t taste like chicken. This recipe starts with your favorite store-bought barbecue sauce and then you dump a few other ingredients in, just to be different. Allow 2 – 4 legs per person for an appetizer serving.
Barbecued Frog Legs
- a mess of frog legs
- olive oil
- kosher or sea salt
- freshly ground pepper
- dash or more Tabasco
- 1 1/2 cups prepared barbecue sauce
- 2 tablespoons garlic cloves minced
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Season legs liberally with olive oil, salt and pepper. Add as much Tabasco as you can handle, cover and refrigerate for 1 – 2 hours. Combine barbecue sauce, garlic and lemon in a small saucepan and heat to blend flavors. Slap the frog legs on a well-oiled white-hot barbecue and cook until just done, about 4 – 5 minutes. While cooking, baste with barbecue sauce.
