I love fried gator tail, and the local restaurant in my area, The Black Hammock, has some of the best I’ve eaten. Unfortunately, I don’t have their recipe. We can actually purchase gator meat, fresh or frozen, at some fresh seafood houses so this is something I would love to try cooking myself. This recipe was taken from the Texas Cooperative Extension Alligator Cookbook and is posted there as a recipe from "Tony Chachere’s Cajun Country Cookbook". It sounds very good, and all recipes I’ve ever seen are very similar with the only noted differences being in the batter and seasoning ingredients. I hope you enjoy this one!
