Alligator Tenderloin meat is white in color and tastes similar to chicken. It has a mild flavor profile that enables it to be used in a variety of applications, and a firm texture that can vary depending on how its prepared. Alligator tenderloin is the perfect meat for marinating, and there are many ways to cook it. Some of the preferred techniques are grilling or breading and frying. Most recipes call for Cajun style, but capers, butter and lemon create another delicious, complimentary flavor profile.
Alligator Tenderloins are a great addition to a traditional gumbo recipe as well! We prefer to poach the tenderloins, then let them cool. We shred the meat by hand, and then add back into the gumbo when it's almost done simmering. Another bonus about this meat is that it's not only tasty and versatile, but virtually fat free and high in protein. You can feel good about enjoying your meal as well!
Our Alligator Tenderloins come from the tail, and are sourced from sustainable farms in Florida and Louisiana. There, the animals are well-cared for and fed a lean, high protein diet.
