I usually don't write much about food.  However, when I was in the military, a fellow recruit invited me to his home for Alligator Stew. 

At first, I thought that he was kidding.  As it turned out, he wasn't.  I thought about it first.  Usually, it is the Alligator that eats the man, not vice verse.Should I try it or politely decline.  Since I was his guest, I didn't want to upset anyone.  To my surprise, it was very good.  This article will give you a recipe and explain how to make your own Alligator Stew.


4 cups of alligator meat cut up to bite size.  1/2 cup of oil.  1 large chopped onion.  1/2 cup of chopped green onions.  1 large bell pepper chopped, (either green, red or yellow).  2 Tbs of parsley. 1 cup of water.  1-10 ounce can of Rotel tomatoes.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Step One;  Brown the alligator in a pan with the oil.  Don't burn it.  Add all chopped vegetables, tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste.  Cook until vegetables are withered.  Add water and cover the pot with a lid.  Cook on medium heat for 30 to 40 minutes.  Medium is a necessity.  When the alligator meat is tender, serve it over rice,  (brown or white).

Note;  You can google "alligator meat"and discover where to get it.  Shipping can be rather expensive.  When you order, demand fresh farm raised lean alligator meat. 

Some individuals say that alligator tastes a little like turtle.  It is a good white meat.  Some people add different Cajun spices to their stew.
