    How To Kill Frog Before Cooking

    As title. It is considered exotic food, not a normal everyday food item. Mostly cooked by Chinese restaurants in Malaysia.

    Live frogs are sold in the local markets here in Chiang Mai, right next to the live eels.

    The frogs are clubbed in the head by the vendor as they are sold.

    This was witnessed by a visiting friend of mine and remains his most vivid memory of Thailand. "It was terrible!" he wails.

    The markets near Rangsit have frogs with their feet cut off which are then skinned alive to writhe in pain until they are bought...Not a pleasant sight...

    My grandfather used to gig bullfrogs then bring them home to cook. He would cut off their hind legs then throw the frogs out in the forest behind the house. Those frogs would be crawling around by their front legs only and croaking for days.

    It was terrible.

    Popular in France too (hence froggies, frog eaters).

    If you can forget how they look when they're alive, they actually don't taste that bad, like a small bird.

    Used to be able to get four crispy tree frogs on a stick for Bt10 in Doi Saket market.

    Unsurprisingly I declined.

    Frogs are dying out all over the world because of fungi and stuff, and if there are any that survive the bloody Thais will eat them all.

    I was told many years ago during school days that frogs are a good indication of a healthy environment as they cant survive in excessive polution. Not sure if that still stands up
    The environment the frogs in the video live in is fraught with hazards that for sure as none get out alive

    They sold on the fresh fish area in Macro. Why fish and not fresh meat?

    Yet, everything we consume has a life.
    One can take spiritual philosophies as that.

    Traditionally, they are hung up by their onions.

    WOW!! No wasted moves in that video . I witnessed Thai's catching frogs in an irrigation pond in Issan. The pond was pumped out c/w a Kubota Paddy Tractor powered 8" turbine pump; then everyone piled into the 0.5m deep muck to catch the writhing fish, frogs & other edibles. The scene was enlivened by 2 x 1.3m long snakes ... which were desperately trying to sliver up the slippery muddy banks of the pond. The Thai's scrambled out of the pond ... but Pa pointed out they were only "Fish Snakes", not poisonous Cobras or Nhu Sam Liam's (kraits). Everyone piled back into the muck. I contributed by building a campsite and starting the cooking fires ... which even with all their "Boy Scout" school training, the Thai's seemed incapable of. I have always been good a starting campfires. We had grilled Fish, Frogs, Snails & several tasty soups ... all washed down c/w copious amounts of Lao Cow & Chang Beers. A real Thai Plagh Party.

    early on in my time here in Malaysia I stopped one night on my way home from work at my favorite open air restaurant. I used to like to watch the cook do his thing...he was always in action, with a couple of woks, jars of various sauces, etc (and him sweating away dripping all the while into the woks :-) ).

    One night I was watching him...he opened a 5 gallon pail, reached in and grabbed a frog by the legs. He turned around and smacked its head against the table leg, with blood spraying everywhere. He dropped the dead from in a bucket of water, and went back to his cooking. Blood spray everywhere, never washed his hands, etc.

    Oh, well, my dinner was good that night and I still have lunch from there a few times a week!

    We have a small pond in our front garden, where a large (man fist size) frog has lived for the past few months. Seems pretty happy in there on his/her own. Nicknamed it 'Rhino' due to the odd growth on it's nose:
