Gator is good. I wish it was more available up here. Since crocs and gators are related, I’d have to assume that they taste similar. More so in that they eat similar things.
I agree on the chickenish flavor, combined with a lobster tail (for the stringy component) and scallop (for the firmness, and grain), but I’d add that I think it has a slightly fishy flavor (a hint if you will). I’m certain the last hint flavor comes from it’s diet.
Great fried, great ground/chopped. I’ve had it grilled, but I found it a bit tough, however, that could have been the chef. (It was served with elk, kangaroo, bison, and a few “rocky mountain oysters”. The “oysters” tasted like finely ground meat, but I had a hard time getting over what they were. )
