Frying Is Not the Only Good Way To Cook Gator

Ask around for the best way to eat alligator, and nine times out of 10, you're going to get the same answer: fried.

You can stuff it whole, or, as I plan on trying with the last of my supply, stuff it in anchos peppers, using this recipe by Chef Jeff Martinez of El Chile Cafe y Cantina in Austin, Texas.
