Beer Battered Cajun Crocodile Recipe (Dark Farmhouse – Microbrasserie Le Castor)

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

A while back I found an amazing store that sold all kinds of weird and wild meats. The place is called Hills Foods and it is located in Coquitlam BC. While I was there I picked up some Crocodile but had no idea what to expect or how to cook it so it stayed in my freezer for some time. Finally I found a recipe on Cilantro Cooks that sounded like a great idea and I took the plunge and cooked it.

Ingredients List:

Place cornmeal into a shallow dish.

In a different bowl add the beer and all of the spices together including salt and pepper.

Soak the crocodile in the beer and spice mixture and then cover in cornmeal by rolling meat in cornmeal. Pace battered crocodile on wax paper.

In a large frying pan or skillet place 1/2 inch of oil into it and heat it up. I set my element at medium-high. Once oil hot place strips in.

Cook the crocodile until it is browned. Then flip it over and fry it on that side. Make sure meat is cooked to a good internal temperature. Keep cooking the crocodile in small batches until you are done.

Once it is ready serve it wish a dipping sauce or salsa. I used salsa. I have to admit this is probably the weirdest thing I have every cooked but it ended up being really tasty. Crocodile tastes similar to chicken. This is the first time I have said that as usually I don't agree with that sentiment. The beer I used was not very fresh so I will not be reviewing it but it still tasted pretty good and using it to cook with it did not matter as much anyways.
