Are frogs legs classsed as a seafood or a meat?

What do you reckon? Is it a meat? Is it a seafood? Or is it something else entirely? I'll give a free recipe to the best answerer! Like this tasty recipe from the Everglades.

I think it is meat, there is nothing fishy about it. In fact, I would say it is banned in my house, ever since I saw live frogs losing their legs in a guillotine. Sickened me to see the poor little blighters struggling to move around.It s obviously the fastest way to prepare them for the table. So horrific.

I would say it's a meat as it's an amphibian, not a fish. Can't see the point in eating it though, IMHO.

Well, it does taste quite meaty, quite chickeny in fact, rather than anything crabby or lobstery. And I agree with you both about not eating them. I only ate them once years ago in Paris (well, when in Montmartre by night for the very first time, you just have to give the frogs' legs a bash haven't you?).

They tasted OK - but nothing I'd call fantastique - in fact, they tasted far more of the butter and garlic and herby sauce they were cooked in than of anything froggy. (Probably needed all the sauce to disguise the taste of the frogs?)

All I know is that I all had severe gastric problems the next day. And the day after that. Since then I have always preferred my frogs scooting around in ponds.
