Directions

  1. Heat oil to 365 F in a deep fryer, or per manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a skillet, sauté alligator meat until done. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all other ingredients, mixing well. Add sautéed alligator and stir to blend. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Use a serving spoon to scoop up tablespoon size pieces of batter and gently drop them into the oil; rinse and dry the spoon as needed to keep the batter from sticking.
  5. Cook the hush puppies, 8 to 10 at a time, until golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and roll on paper towels to briefly drain. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
