Fried alligator taste like a cross between chicken and fish with the texture of a piece of pork. Alligator is a Southern Louisiana staple frequently served as the meat in meatloaf, burgers, gumbo, boudin or simple breaded and fried. You don’t need to do a lot of work to bring home the delicious taste of fried alligator. I buy my breaded alligator nuggets at Sam’s Club. These nuggets are breaded and perfectly seasoned; all you have to do is heat oil to 350 degrees and drop them in. When the nuggets float, which takes about 4 minutes and are perfectly browned on all sides, remove them from the grease and eat.
I serve my fried alligator with garlic aioli or a remoulade sauce.
1 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup Creole mustard, 1 tablespoon dill pickle relish, 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning salt, 1 teaspoon creamy prepared horseradish, 2 teaspoons dill pickle juice, 2 teaspoons Louisiana hot sauce, 2 teaspoons granulated garlic, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/8 teaspoon chili powder. Mix together well refrigerate for at lease an hour and serve with the nuggets.
