Have you ever eaten the delicacy known as frog legs? I have and thought they were quite tasty. Of course, you have to get over the fact that you’re eating an amphibian, but once you do, they might become a favorite.
I found that few places offer frog legs on their menu. However, there are places in Colorado where you can get your frog leg fix.
Frog legs. A French and Chinese delicacy
According to Wikipedia, frog legs are held in high culinary esteem in French and Chinese cuisine. After living in the south for a few years, I know the southern states love their frog legs too.
Not all frogs are edible
Some species of frogs are poisonous, you definitely wouldn’t want to eat one. Wikipedia lists the common water frog (green frog) and a few species of European frogs as edible.
