Frog Legs Adobo

Labels: , , , , ,

I watched yet again Andrew Zimmerman's Bizarre Foods Philippine edition currently streaming through Netflix and thought the bloated stuffed frog legs looked funny and weird. When I was a kid we used to have them adobo style with achuete (annatto). They were tiny though and not as meaty as the ones I found recently at the Asian market.  

I'm not a squeamish eater but the frog legs looked unappetizing so I separated the legs, marinated them for a few hours in coconut vinegar, sea salt, crushed garlic, and achuete paste. They were then shallow-fried to add a little color to them before adding the marinade and a little water and stewed until tender. Delicious! Just like the way my mom cooked them.

Would you believe I used to love frog legs adobo as a kid because my dad cooked this all the time. I would eat it again as an adult especially with this nice of a presentation, Oggi. :)

I was so afraid to try them when I was a kid but I wouldn't hesitate to try it now :-) Sabi ng tatay ko lasang manok lang daw...

I have a confession to make; I haven't eaten frogs yet, but I would love to try them because others keep saying they taste like chicken. Do they?
