Delicious stir-fried frogs

A different way of cooking frog meats, other than steaming them with ginger, garlic and wine.  This one tasted better and my kids enjoy the tender meats and gravy more than the steaming one.

Ingredients:

5 farm frogs; cut into half
Small knob of Ginger, sliced
1 garlic cloves, smashed and minced
Pinch of salt
Pinch pepper
Cornflour mixed with water for thickening

Marinade:
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp Shao Xing wine

Seasoning:
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
1/2 tbsp Shao Xing wine
200ml water

Methods:

1. Marinate the frog parts with marinade for few hours before cooking.
2. Heat up about 3 tbsp cooking oil in wok.  Once heated up, throw in the ginger and garlic.  Stir fry till fragrant.
3. Add in the marinated frog parts.  Stir fry for 1 minute before add in the seasoning.  Simmer for 5 minutes or longer.
4. Add thickening to your preference.  Dish out.

p/s you can add scallions into this recipe for more flavour.
