Marinated and smoked alligator

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Over the weekend I finally had the opportunity to cook up some alligator (been dying to cook some for years). I bought the meat at a local cajun meat store, it was pre-marinated so we just threw it on with no preparation needed. Also we fried some "cajun alligator bites". Spicy! Here are the pics:

Hi Tom!

 

The alligator gets smoked just 25 minutes, and that thread should be around in the non-fish seafood section I believe, with the details.

 

And there's an octopus thread there too, which I posted yesterday, and so yesterday's octopus got smoked just 15 minutes and it was really moist and wonderful! Hopefully that helps.

 

Your penchant for exotic food is terrific!!! Cheers! - Leah

thanks!!
i will try to look them up. i come from a family that i was 20 something before i realised sardines, mackerel, smelt and calamari etc. was not a "normal" meal. my boys at 2-3 were eating fresh shucked oysters with me and now at 30 eat everything. i struggle with octopous (getting tender) so again thanks for the input. love to meet other eaters!! see you are off the east coast, i am origionaly from the far, far norteast of NY and missspent youth in the SF bay area BUT on the coast for frsh fish that you are privy for now it is at least a two hr drive.

Hi Tom! Your upbringing indeed sounded delicious! Oddly I too requested exotic fare when just a child, although my siblings did not. That's fantastic that you exposed your own children to gourmet goods and being "open" to trying new things.

 

Here's to fabulous eating and for all!!!! Happy Saturday!!! Cheers! - Leah
