Nick Acosta's Frog Legs
Rouses sells already cleaned frog legs in our Seafood Department. If you’re using fresh caught, skin the frogs as if you were peeling off a glove, and soak the legs in cold water for at least two hours.
2 to 2 ½ pounds small frog legs
1/3 cup rouses whole milk
2 teaspoons Rouses vegetables oil
2 eggs, separated
2 cups all-purpose flour
Rouses Creole Seasoning
Rouses Vegetables oil for deep frying
Using kitchen shears, snip the small bone connecting the legs and remove the feet.
In a small bowl, whisk together milk, oil and egg yolks. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites into milk, oil and egg yolk mixtures.
Sprinkle frog legs with Creole seasoning. Dip each leg in milk-egg mixture and dredge in flour.
In black iron pot or deep fryer, heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees. Fry frog legs until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer frog legs to paper towels to drain. (serves 4 to 6)
