Alligator meat has long been a staple ingredient in Southern cooking. Go to home-grown waterfront restaurants in Orange Beach, AL, and you’re bound to find a few gator dishes displayed on the menu.
While this man-eater certainly looks terrifying, its meat tastes very much like that tasty crowd-favorite: chicken. The only difference is a nice, fishy character to gator meat that fits right in with the gorgeous coasts of Orange Beach.
One thing is for sure: gator meat is delicious. It can be an alternative meat for hearty and rich gumbo or jambalaya. Or if you want to take it slow, have it as a deep-fried or blackened appetizer to share. Post originally appeared on TackyJacks.com blog page.
