Yesterday when we went to M&T Meats we saw gator tail, so we figured what the heck let’s give it a try. Every time we go to Tampa, we eat gator tail, but I have never made it myself. I figured I would give it a try with a simple flour, egg, flour dredge. It was just my husband and I so there was way too much for us to eat as our lunch today, so wishing I would have only cooked 1/3 of the package. It was tasty, but I have a few things I would do differently next time. I bought a remoulade sauce from the store, but didn’t care too much for it. Instead I made a mayo ketchup to dip the gator in. The mayo ketchup is simply that, mayo & ketchup with a little lemon juice. Mix it up and enjoy dipping almost anything in. I also think since I dredged it in flour twice, the batter was a little too salty…so next time I will use less salt because of the double dredge. All in all, it was a pretty successful first try at cooking gator tail. As promised, I did try to get some photos as I was working through the process. The beginning photos I just used my iPhone, but once I plated it, I got the real camera out. Next up for dinner, some porterhouse steaks and smashed & roasted red potatoes. Come back soon!
