Ain’t nothing like grilled frogs on a stick


Grilled frogs on a stick

Here’s a tasty snack found in Laos and some parts of Northeast Thailand. Quarter-sized grilled frogs on a stick.  These particular frogs were found on the riverside in Vientiane, where I might add that I also happened to find some of the best and cheapest grilled ribs I’ve ever had.  Pleasant surroundings, too, just sitting along the Mekong River.

Many of you might be disgusted by this so-called snack, but it’s actually very tasty.  Probably nutritious, too.  The taste is somewhat salty, somewhat fishy, somewhat something else and the texture is crunchy and mushy at the same time.  Really a conundrum of tastes since it’s something I’m not used to.
