Carefully pound alligator filets into hand-size rectangles, without tearing meat. Lightly season with salt and cayenne pepper. Set aside. In a large skillet, melt margarine and Saute onion, bell pepper and celery until tender. Add salt, pepper and garlic to mixture and stir. Dissolve bouillon cubes in water, add to mixture and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients, carefully folding in the crabmeat last.
