Grilled Frog (Gop Yang)

Crunchy and salty, these barbecued frogs are eaten in the Eastern province of Isaan (my home province). You'll find them ready cooked in Isaan markets, simply take them home and eat with rice.

Although they look burnt, they don't taste burnt, if you can imagine a very very intense savoury flavour and aroma, (and no they don't taste like chicken!). Because the flavour is so intense these are something of a high priced delicacy rather than everyday food. Below you see the markets also sell live frogs, and frogs prepared (gutted) ready for grilling.
