Well on this Saturday at noon I tried Gator Meat for thr first time and loved it! I had heard it tastes similar to Chicken and it does. I think the meat might be a bit tougher than Chicken but besides that it seemed pretty much the same.

I purchased the Gator on line from http://www.cajungrocer.com/ I purchased the Alligator Nuggets – BREADED 2 Pound bag. I fried the Gator in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. The breading is fantastic! Thin breading and it fries up golden brown and the seasoning is perfect on it. It’s spicy with a hint of heat but not over powering. I served it with a Boar’s Head Savory Remoulade Sauce for dipping. I’m a Gator Meat fan as of today! i also purchased some Crawfish that I’m going to fix maybe later this week. plenty of the Gator left also. The Cajun Grocer web site is loaded with great Cajun food, sides, spices and recipes. A-1 servive also along with fair shipping rates. Here at the bottom of the post I’ll leave the Cajun Grocer info along with the Gator Meat info. You got to give this a try!

Cajun Food

Most people think of Cajun food as being extremely spicy, blackened foods. This couldn’t be further from the truth. True Cajun style cooking utilizes fresh, quality ingredients paired to create complementary flavors without the need for lots of seasoning. Additionally, Cajun food should never be overcooked. However, some dishes should be thoroughly cooked, allowing the flavors to meld together over time.

If you want the freshest authentic Cajun food available, you’re going to want to start from scratch with the freshest ingredients. Our fresh Cajun food products are shipped from Louisiana in a custom-printed cooler packed with dry ice to ensure freshness when they arrive at your door.
Whether it’s standard Cajun delights like gulf shrimp, fresh sausage, gumbos or stuffed breads, or more adventurous dishes like alligator, jambalaya, boudin, crawfish etouffee and live crawfish, you won’t be disappointed in the quality of our fresh food products. All of our fresh Cajun food products are shipped in dry ice for the freshest delivery possible.
