PUFA content of frog legs?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I noticed frog legs are on sale at a local asian market this week for like $3 a pound, wondering if these would be high in PUFA like chicken thighs/legs are supposed to be?

do you think they would be pretty healthy sauteed in ghee or coconut oil?

anyone have a good recipe for these things?

If these frog legs are farm raised from South East Asia, then ask yourself if you'd want to eat farmed shrimp from that part of the world, the frogs would be raised in equally unappetizing situations. If these happen to be wild harvested frogs (unlikely), then absolutely avoid them, amphibian populations world-wide are crashing - pollution, over harvesting, habitat loss, chytrid fungus- and I think a species' welfare & survival should trump one's desire to eat "different" things in the name of "paleo". Same applies to turtles, they are no longer sustainable. Best to leave 'em alone.
