Stir Fried Lemongrass Frog Legs Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • 6 double frog legs (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup Vietnamese fish sauce (nuoc mam)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 stalks lemongrass, outer leaves and tough green tops removed, root ends trimmed, and stalks finely ground
  • 2 unripe star fruit, thinly sliced into stars, to serve
  • Vietnamese Scallion Oil (see the recipe below), to serve
How to cook Stir Fried Lemongrass Frog Legs:
  • Rinse, drain, and blot dry the frog legs thoroughly with paper towels. Then split them in half through the pelvic bone so you have single legs.
  • Whisk together the sugar and fish sauce in a bowl until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in 1 tablespoon oil and the lemongrass. Transfer the frog legs and marinade to a plastic bag, seal it, and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours, turning the bag over every 30 minutes.
  • On each plate, overlap 8 to 10 star fruit slices in a circle. Working in batches if necessary, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a nonstick pan over high heat. Add the frog legs and sear until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Cover and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Transfer 3 single frog legs to each plate, carefully placing them in the center of the star fruit garnish. Drizzle with scallion oil and serve hot.
