How To Make Alligator in Garlic-Wine Sauce


2 pounds alligator meat, cut into cubes
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
all-purpose flour for dusting
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup white wine


Toss alligator cubes with lime juice, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.

Squeeze any excess liquid from alligator and place into a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss with enough flour to coat. Remove alligator, shake off excess flour, and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add alligator, and cook until firm and opaque, 5 to 6 minutes. Place alligator into serving dish, then pour wine into skillet and simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour sauce over alligator to serve.
