First Time For Gator

Postby woodenvisions » Sat Dec 31, 2016 7:09 pm

Well, I've finally gotten around to frying up some gator OUP hooked me up with ( Thanks again buddy ).
Hit the fillets up with Suckle Busters Texas Gold Dust and S&P and drug Em across some flour mixed with Old Bay,Cayenne,& Cajun seasoning then into a mix of Buttermilk & Frank's Hot Sauce and back to the flour mixture before frying in the cast iron lid of the dutch oven.
The wife went with SBR Honey Mustard and I used the Jerk sauce that OUP shared with his Jerk Chicken post.

Definitely a great way to end 2016, turned out GREAT !!

It's funny you ask Bill...
It's a mix between both to be completely honest. It almost resembles chicken when you cut it, but looks like fried fish in the inside. It has a mixed taste as well but it's really really lean tho, not much fat so I imagine it's easy to overcook.

Reason I asked is I've only have had gator once. I couldn't decide then between it tasting like chicken or fish :dont:
It was good tasting either way tho. :lol:

THIS is so incredibly accurate it isn't funny. It's true with most meats like this though. Looks fantastic! I put gator in the same column as softshell turtle as far as flavor goes; kinda like chicken with a hint of fish.
(Insert witty signature here)
