Toads – another filler meat


Bucket of Toads

I had a post somewhere along the lines talking about eels.  Well toads are another ‘filler’ meat.  I say filler because I’m not aware of anyone actually eating the toads for the meat.  It’s more just a protein to put into a dish that will mask the taste of the toad meat.  An example, yet again, is the ubiquitous ga-prao [กะเพรา], or stir-fried with basil leaves.  Just chop them up into tiny pieces, throw it in the skillet, and cook up a tasty meal.
