Default Wild Allgator?

A friend of mine gave me several pounds of wild gator meat. I have never actually cooked wild gator before. Any suggestions for preparation and recipes?

Take it and marinate it in beer brat mustard and beer for a couple hours and then use waterever batter you desire and throw it in the fryer. Had some Saturday like this and it was awsome. Actually did some wild turkey breast the same way...

Thanks,I'll try that! I love some wild turkey fried up too!

For Blackening should I high heat or long heat? Does anyone soak in butter milk or take any special precautions to marinate before hand?

Alligator Beignets/Fritters

1 egg beaten
1 lb chopped cooked gator meat(I cooked mine just before mixing)
4 green onions chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1.5 tsp melted butter
1/3 cup flour

After cooking gator meat mix all the above in a bowl until combined completely. Heat oil in a skillet deep enough to fry beignets. With a table spoon scoop up the mix and ease into hot oil one spoon full at a time. Skillet should hold four or five without them touching. Fry to a golden brown on both sides.

Dipping sauce

3/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 tsp prepared horseradish

Blend the ingredients and add hot sauce to taste.

Turns out that the package that I took out of the freezer was ground gator. So I decided to make Gator Balls.

Yummy! Blackening is high heat, smaller strips cook better.
