My family got a small package of alligator tail from our neighbor's hunting trip. It had already been 'cubed/flattened'.
I marinated this for about 7 hours in ACV and minced garlic.
Then I coated it in coconut oil, then coated it in a mixure of:
Celtic Sea salt
Baked at 350 for 20ish minutes
'Twas pretty good! Though I think [I]frying[I][/I][/I] it in coconut oil would be better.
I hope the images are approved soon so y'all can see what it looked like...
:) that poor wee defenceless fella - with the big sharp teeth. Was it good ????????:)
That sounds delicious! (though my taste buds are imagining lobster tail meat ;) I imagine they taste quite different)
truly, it tastes like chicken
I'm still thinking the poor wee frella !!!!! :) with the big sharp teeth ! :)
Yes, it did pretty much taste like chicken! It was a fun experience, though, since I don't eat much in the way of meats besides beef, chicken, and pork.
The poor wee fella probably was cute. But oh well, my tummy liked him. (:
I've tried alligator meat, don't know what part of the beast it was from. This was pre-primal, so we made gator-dillas (quesadillas with gator meat). It smells fishy, kind of feels fishy, but definitely tastes like chicken.
I had alligator cooked cajun "blackened " style on top of a caesar salad in New Orleans. Very tasty. It's like chicken texture-wise but it almost has a fishy taste.
