~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cajun Recipe ~ Frog Legs Provencal ~~~~~~~~~~~~


PREP TIME: 30 minutes
SERVES: 4

COMMENT:
When I was growing up on the bayous of South Louisiana, I thought frog legs were by far the greatest delicacy to come out of the swamp waters. Today, I know they are! Provencal refers to that style of cooking from the south of France bordering the region of Provence on the Mediterranean Sea. Normally, tomatoes smothered in garlic and olive oil along with herbs de Provence set the tone for this style of cooking.

INGREDIENTS:

* 8 Louisiana frog legs
* 1 cup seasoned white flour
* 1/4 pound melted butter
* 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
* 1/2 cup minced Bermuda onions
* 1/4 cup slivered garlic
* 1 cup diced Creole tomatoes
* 1 ounce dry white wine
* 1 cup chicken stock
* 1/4 cup sliced green onions
* salt and pepper to taste
* TABASCO® brand Original pepper sauce to taste

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:
In a 10-inch sauté pan heat butter and olive oil over medium high heat.
Coat frog legs in seasoned flour shaking off all excess.
When butter is hot, sauté frog legs 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Add onions and garlic.
Sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are wilted.
Add tomatoes and cook 2 to 3 additional minutes.
Deglaze with white wine, then add chicken stock.
Bring to a rolling boil.
Reduce to simmer and cook until frog legs are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
Sauce should be slightly thickened because of the flour in the skillet.
Add green onions and season to taste using salt, pepper, and TABASCO® brand Original pepper sauce.
