Home | Recipes | A


  • 1 lb Marinated alligator fillet cut into small pieces
  • 1 lb Hot sausage (Italian) cut into chunks
  • 3 tb Oil
  • 2/3 c Bell peppers chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic crushed
  • 3/4 c Parsley
  • 1 c Chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 c Chopped celery
  • 2 cn Tomatoes (16 oz each)
  • 2 c Chicken stock (2 pkg.chicken cube mix + water also works)
  • 1 c Green onion
  • 2 ts Oregano
  • 2 ds Red hot sauce (optional)
  • 1 tb Cajun spices (blackened or cajun king herbed spice excellent)- to taste
  • Salt- to taste
  • 2 c Raw white rice


In deep frying pan (cast iron preferably) saute the bell pepper, garlic parsley and celery. While this is cooking, add tomatoes & their liquid, the chicken stock &, green onion to a pot that can cook on the stove and in the oven (corning ware ) Stir in spices, sauteed vegetables raw rice, sausage and alligator fillet pieces. Cook on medium-high heat until liquid is absorbed (stir occasionally to make sure rice doesn't burn on bottom) and then bake covered in the oven for 25 minutes. Good luck, I done this three times and the usual comment is its superb but where is the alligator...
I have tried this recipe for marinated alliator fillet and found no complaints.

I can't vouch for the flavor of this sucker. I haven't made it, as I'd never touch Alligator voluntarily, myself...
