Serves 8

Ingredients

2 skewers of frogs legs

1 clove of garlic

200g bread

1 shallot

1 bunch of parsley

200ml crème fraiche

200ml white wine

250g of butter

2 egg yolks

1 lemon

50ml Vermouth

 

Method

Parsley purée

Wash the parsley leaves, put them into salted boiling water and let them cool down into frozen water, strain through a sieve to get a smooth purée. Set aside.

 

Croutons

Brown in a pan with butter and one garlic clove and then strain on absorbing paper.

 

Frogs legs

Divide all the frogs legs, wash and add salt. Cut small, 1.5cm cubed croutons from the bread. Cook the frogs' legs in a sautée pan with frothed butter for 5-6 minutes. Fine-cut the shallot and add at the end of cooking. Once cooked, remove the butter and glaze the legs with Vermouth. Reduce the liquid by ¾. Add the white wine and the crème fraiche, then cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the parsley purée and finish thickening on a low heat, with the two egg yolks.

 

To serve

Check the seasoning, add some lemon juice and salt and pepper as necessary. Arrange the frogs, sauce and the croutons.
