Barbecued Crocodile Steaks With Asian Flavors (Or Alligator)

"Crocodile tastes similar to chicken but with a mild fish flavor. The tail is definitely the best part. This is how Chef Anthony Hendre prepares it in Port Douglas in Far North Queensland, Australia. This recipe will work with gator as well."

directions

  • Prepare a fire in a barbecue and let the coals burn down until they are white.
  • Meanwhile, cut out six 30-cm (12-in) squares of aluminum foil and spread out on work surface. Place and equal portion of the carrots, leeks, gingerroot and lemongrass in the center of each square. Top with a crocodile steak. Add a slice of lime and pour about 1 tablespoon oyster sauce and ½ teaspoon sesame oil over each parcel. Wrap the foil to seal securely, lace the packets on the barbecue rack and cook for 6 minutes; at this point the crocodile should be tender. Open one package to check that the steak is done.
  • Once cooked, slide the steaks out of the foil onto serving plates. Top with coriander, mint and sesame seeds and serve.

Our wedding was perfect and I will cherish the memories forever. Leslie, Mama's Kitchen, sassafrasnanc, Mommy Diva and Chef V attended the wedding with their husbands!!

Zaar World Tour II doubled in size and ~Leslie~ and I were joined with co-hosts Mama�s Kitchen and kzbhansen. Zaar World Tour 3 doubled again in size and Leslie, Mama's Kitchen and I were joined with SusieD, PanNan and JustCallMeToni! We also established the "Whine and Cheese Gang" which was a wonderful team that was put together to help all the teams playing. Zaar World Tour IV will be bigger and even better!!!
