There are several regional cuisines that feature frogs on the menu. I actually like frog’s legs when battered and deep fried. But I have to admit, eating a whole frog would take some doing. I also have to say that skinning a frog would pose its own set of problems for me, particularly since some folks seem to do when they are still alive, or at least twitching dramatically. I don’t know why I feel less squeamish about murdering a crab than a frog, but I do. At any rate, on our recent trip up North, I spotted a roadside vendor somewhere in Pangasinan with a lot of live frogs. Like a crazy person, I stopped the car, turned it around, jumped out and grabbed my camera and tried to snap a photo. But I was too late, someone had purchased the frogs and loaded them onto a tricycle by the time I got back to the intersection… bummer. But a couple of days later, in the Vigan market, I found this lady selling live frogs. I managed to take this photo of the frogs, the whole bunch for PHP120. Perhaps 2-3 kilos worth… I decided it was the large eyes that made it harder to hara-kiri these guys (actually, the better term is sepuku, not hara kiri). Apparently these frogs are caught in the “clean waters” of nearby rice fields…got any good recipes?
