Alligator/Crocodile Recipe?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 27, 2012 at 9:37 PM

Just discovered a little market nearby that sells crocodile meat (claws included!). I absolutely insist on trying it, but the few recipes I've found online involve breading and frying. Anyone have any paleo-approved methods of cooking, recipes, accompaniments? Never given it a go and would appreciate any advice so I don't ruin the stuff.

I ate crocodile in Sydney, they brought me burning hot stone slab and a raw crocodile fillet, so I had to cut small pieces of it and roast them at the spot, it was ok.

I think there are two ways to cook it - barbeque, medium rare so that it maintains some softness or slow cooking with a lot of fat.

Anything I don't know how to cook I roast it for an hour at 350 or slow poach in butter until I can stick a chopstick through it and it comes out clean.

There may be recipes in old versions of Joy of Cooking. Check your library.

I had croc several years ago and it was breaded and fried. Tail is a bit like organ meat in texture so it holds up really well to frying. Legs can be cooked more like rib chops, spicy dry rub and a quick cook.

The other option is to go rotisserie style, this doesn't taste as good (in my opinion) but is more typical of a traditional style of cooking.
