1/2 pound alligator meat, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Fish batter, for coating (see *Cook's Note)
Cooking oil, for frying
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Serving suggestions: various dipping sauces such as remoulade, mustard, or cocktail
Fill a deep pot halfway full with oil. Heat to 360 degrees F. Coat the alligator meat with the fish batter. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until gator floats in oil. Remove and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve as an appetizer with remoulade sauce, mustard sauce, or cocktail sauce for dipping.
*We prefer Golden Dip brand fish batter, but if store-bought batter is not available in your area you can substitute flour seasoned with salt and pepper.
