1 pound alligator meat, cut into chunks (can substitute chicken or pork)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Flour, for dredging

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup hot sauce

1 bottle store bought ranch dressing, for dipping


  1. Heat a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly season gator meat with salt and pepper prior to dredging them in flour. Combine buttermilk and hot sauce into 1 mixture. Dip the gator meat into the buttermilk and hot sauce mixture and dip, once again, in flour. Then place in deep fryer until golden brown, just a couple minutes.
