Spicy Teriyaki Frog Legs (fried)

I make my own teriyaki marinade and this is the kicker…

3 tablespoons butter
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 ounce fresh ground ginger root (substitute 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1/4 cup onion finely chopped

Melt butter in small cooking pot. Add all ingredients and bring to boil stirring often (cook about 10 minutes). Let cool and add meat to marinade. Marinate frog legs overnight in refrigerator. If the marinade does not cover all of the meat, add water to adjust.

For my coating I use…

2 cups milk
1 cup of Bass Pro Shops “Uncle Bucks Hot Fish Batter”
1/2 cup buttermilk pancake mix
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

In zip-loc bag mix all dry ingredients. Dredge 4 sets frog legs thoroughly in milk and then put in zip-loc bag, shake vigorously for 30 seconds, remove frog legs and coat the remaining.

Fry frog legs as you normally would. The taste is terrific!
