Gator

So one of my distributors that delivers to my resturant brought me about 10 pounds of Gator. I have never cooked gator before so I was hoping You Florida and Bayou boys could help me with some reicpes so I can cook this stuff up. Thanks

Just Google for alligator recipes. I found a bunch of sites with recipes. Let us know how it tastes. I know, I know, it probably tastes like chicken.

the only way I have ever eaten gator was to cut it up into bite sized pieces, dip in flour and what ever else you want to season it with and fry it don't try to cook it in a big piece I have made that mistake it always turns out tough so make sure you cube it up into bite sized pieces

Fried is a good way to have it, but the best way we serve it here in Clearwater, FL is blackened. It is a huge hit at a couple of local restaurants that prepare it here. I recommend it bite size to.
