Popular with chefs and home cooks in the Deep South, alligator has a soft, tender texture similar to veal, and a neutral flavor that takes well to big spices and sauces.
Why alligator meat is healthy
Alligator fuses the best of surf and turf: It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids and packs more muscle-building protein than beef or chicken.
Where you can buy alligator meat
Alligator meat is available on line. For example, fossilfarms.com sells alligator meat and other exotic meats. Rub each pound of gator with 2 tablespoons of blackening seasoning. Cook over high heat on a grill or in a cast-iron skillet. [source: Men's Health]
