I thought this was pretty cool. I think Pegger1 misread the directions b/c it said she put 4 TABLEspoons instead of teaspoons of salt. I made this b/c when I was little my dad who lives in Florida sent me a can of gator meat as a joke. Made me think of him (don't worry, I didn't use that same can).

I'm sorry to say that this recipe was waaaay to salty! I should have known what using 4 tblsp. of seasoning salt would do but I was making it for New Years Eve and it looked easy and quick so I grabbed it. Not only that but my gator tail was preserved in salt water. First time I ever made alligator though!
