Since moving to Louisiana, I’ve been more open minded to trying new food. Before, I would never even think about eating seafood….especially not swamp food. After trying and LOVING crawfish and crab, I decided I would give in and try the ultimate swamp delicacy….alligator.
The sound of “alligator on a stick” sounds unappealing from the start, but the first bite into that sausage was one of the best flavors I’ve ever tasted. Besides the overload on garlic, it was the most tender, flavorful sausage that I’ve had before.
So my word of advice is, before being completely repulsed by the thought of eating alligator, give it a try…you might be pleasantly surprised. (Unless you’re a vegetarian, of course 😉 )
