Farm Raised Alligator

This was featured on the local news by Chef John Folse.

Creole-Braised Alligator Legs - Video

Creole-Braised Gator Legs - Print Version

The tail meat is a delicious fried and served with Red Remoulade Sauce or cocktail sauce.

Gator sandwiches are good too. You can enjoy the meat in a lot of ways.

I've never been able to warm up to Alligator. Always tastes like fishy chicken to me. And while I love fish & love chicken, I'm not crazy about the flavors mixed together like that.

That's funny. Fishy chicken.

Two of my neighbors had tags to go hunting about a month ago...Both teams got their limit of two...We used some of the tail meat from one to make Sauce Piquant...Delicious over rice........

I once toyed around with writing a comic book with "Fishy Chicken" as the hero.

Now Boar I'd have no problem with, although I'll admit I've never had it. We did, however, used to have a local farmer who raised heritage breed Tamworth pigs that he allowed to free-range over several hundred acres of woodland. That was **** good pork!

Alligator, you can keep. If you like it, fine. Food is all about personal preference. It's just not my cup of tea.
