Fried Alligator

Updated: Feb 15, 2023


  • 1 pound alligator meat, cut into chunks (can substitute chicken or pork)

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Flour, for dredging

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 cup hot sauce

  • 1 bottle store bought ranch dressing, for dipping


Heat a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.

Lightly season gator meat with salt and pepper prior to dredging them in flour. Combine buttermilk and hot sauce into 1 mixture. Dip the gator meat into the buttermilk and hot sauce mixture and dip, once again, in flour. Then place in deep fryer until golden brown, just a couple minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve with ranch dressing.
