Have you Eaten Alligator Meat?

Alligator fillet sold in Walmart

I went to Walmart Neighborhood yesterday, I wanted to pick fish fillet, and I saw filet of alligator accidentally.

I thought this kind of “meat” sold in the specific market, never expected that they are available in grocery stores like Walmart.

Yes, Louisiana has a great number of alligators:
- 2 million wild alligators
- 300 thousand farming alligator.

Several other states have alligators as well, the number from millions to thousands, they are:

- Florida

- Georgia
- Alabama
- Mississippi
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- Texas
- Oklahoma
- Arkansas


Recipe to cook alligator fillet (back packed)

When I asked friends of mine from Louisiana, they said that there are alligator burgers and cooked alligator sold in the certain seafood markets as well.

I tried to “googling” to find out Louisiana’s recipe for alligator meat. Surprisingly, many recipes and dishes relate to alligator meat.


One of Louisiana dishes called Cajun with alligator meat
(Credit to Louisiana Cookin’).

It is said that alligator meat is good for health because of low fat and highly protein content.

Favorite parts of alligator to eat are:
- tenderloin (inner tail)
- legs (called as white legs’ meat)

The meat are processed like other cow or chicken meats, they can be found in the market in the form of:
- fillet
- sausages
- soup ball
- used for steak or stew.

I've never eaten or planned to eat alligator meat in near future. I just feel odd.


Have you eaten alligator meat?

  1. For meats I am very delicate, not to mention that I suppose I was born a vegetarian ... ha ha ha
    It has always been a great effort to get rid of my imagination regarding these poor dead animals to satisfy the taste of humans.

    A hug.

  9. Por España no se acostumbra a comer ese tipo de carne...lo más frecuente es la carne de cerdo, ternera, pollo, pavo, conejo y también venado.
    Aunque acostumbro a comer carne, prefiero mejor el pescado.

  13. Evi, I have never tried alligator meat. I don't want.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes, Evi, I have eaten and it is exquisite, very similar to chicken, in various recipes and preparations. Where I was born, in Goya, province of Corrientes, northwestern Argentina, an area called mesopotamia, it is a very popular food and in the varied Correntine jungle fauna the crocodile is called yacaré.

    By the way I wanted to eat it. Here in the urban area of ​​the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, where I live today, there is almost no consumption of yacaré (cocodrilo) meat.

    Another great post, Evi. See you later... and big hugs!!

  29. Aquí en España, que yo sepa, no se comercializan, pero a pesar de ello lo probé en una ocasión, en el pabellón de Australia, de una feria gastronómica de Naciones, que vino a Sevilla, hace dos años.
    Y me llevé una agradable sorpresa, ya que su sabor era bastante apetitoso, aunque tuve que pensar que estaba comiendo carne de otro animal.
    Gracias Evi, por tu buen hacer.
    Un abrazo.

  52. HI ! no never!but maybe one day I can try it :)
    Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Once, on a pizza. It tasted fishy. To be honest, I feel odd about it too. I wouldn't have it again because it just seems like something that should not be eaten. People rave about it though...and I am sure I eat things that other people, worlds away, may find unpalatable. Hot dogs, for example!
