  • 2 Pounds Alligator Pieces
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Buttermilk
  • Chef Rande̒ Cajun Fish Fry Mix
  1. Cut up the alligator in to small bites. Approximately 1” square is great.
  2. Lightly season the alligator bites with salt and pepper
  3. Place the alligator bites in a bowl and cover with the buttermilk. Marinate for about an hour, but no more than 24 hours.
  4. Heat oil in a deep fryer or a cast iron skillet to 350°.
  5. Remove excess buttermilk from the alligator pieces.
  6. Coat the alligator bites in the Chef Rande̒ Cajun Fish Fry Mix
  7.  With the oil at 350°, slowly drop in the bites and fry until golden brown on all sides.
  8. Work in batches. Transfer to a wire rack when cooked.
Chef Rande̒ Tip: For extra crispy alligator bites, dip them back in the buttermilk and then one more time in my Cajun Fish Fry Mix.

Never had alligator? It’s a mild white meat and firm in texture. Yep, it takes just like chicken!
