Not to be contrite, but alligator is a mild white meat that resembles... are you ready for this... (drum roll please!)... Chicken!
Actually, cooked properly it's more tender than chicken and has a better flavor.
About once a month I indulge myself with deep fried alligator tail served with a peach chutney dipping sauce!
Using them in beignets sounds great! I'll definitely have to try that!
