Alligator Leg & Body Meat
8 vacuum sealed packs, approximately 5 lbs. each (about 40 lbs.)
Alligator leg and body meat is more strongly flavored when compared to alligator tail meat and is said to taste somewhat similar to pork shoulder. It is often used as a substitute for turtle meat.
Alligator is extremely low in cholesterol and high in iron levels.
Store alligator tail & body meat in your freezer, then thaw as many packs as you need.
RECIPES & TIPS
Alligator leg and body meat is excellent for use in soups, stews and sauces. Be sure to pat the meat dry prior to cooking it for a better sear.
Alligator is best cooked either very quickly (seared or fried) or very slowly on low heat (stewed or braised). Doing so will keep the meat tender.
Pair alligator with flavors like bacon, garlic, chile, lemon and/or beer.
