RECIPES & TIPS
Alligator is best cooked either very quickly (fried or seared) or very slowly on low heat (stewing or braising). Many people recommend marinating alligator meat to introduce extra flavor. Whether marinating or not, be sure to pat the meat dry prior to cooking it for a better sear.
Alligator can also be tenderized, fried & served with a savory sauce. It is also delicious in stews & gumbos.
Pair alligator with flavors like bacon, garlic, chile, lemon and/or beer.
