You say to-MAY-to, I say to-MAH-to. It is still a reptile.

My coworkers had an alligator stand at state fair, there was always line there. I've tasted it couple of times. I suppose if you are hungry and the only thing there to eat is alligator then you can eat it, otherwise I would not recommend it. It does not taste like chicken.

The tail meat, and the cheek meat are tender & tasty fried...IF not over cooked. The rest of the critter (red meat) is best suited to braising methods.
Sauce piquant, Creole, Fricassee,(not the french version) or perhaps in a red gravy with pasta.... and a gumbo is not out of the question.

We eat crocodile down here (mostly just the tail), and it tastes great! I know it's stereotyping by saying that it "tastes like chicken", but it really does. I don't know why it isn't more popular down here because crocs are farmed now.
