Blackened Alligator

This is a great dish as either an appetizer to entree. This tasty dish is a great way to bite the gator before it bites you.

2 pounds alligator tail meat. cut into 1-inch pieces

5 tablespoons of your favorite Blackening seasoning

1 tablespoon canola oil

Place a large coast-iron skillet over high heat until very hot, about 7 minutes. In a large bowl, add alligator meat, and toss with blackened seasoning.

Add canola oil to the skillet, and carefully add alligator in batches. Let cook until meat is blackened and releases easily, 2 to 3 minutes. When it releases, turn each piece, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove alligator from the skillet and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.


Creole & Cajun Comfort Food is now available online in both Hardback and Paperback versions.
