kangaroo & alligator recipes
Posted 18 January 2012 - 04:14 PM
It brings back memories of chat room discussions of how to cook eggs, but I may be the only one still around who remembers those days.
ANYWAY, last night l learned that I am cooking alligator and Kangaroo on Thursday night, the 19th. So I need recipes for alligator tail and side dishes (also desert and beverage) and for kangaroo burger 1/4 pound (.55 kg) and for something else using 3/4 pound (1.7 kg) ground kangaroo, also w/ sides, dessert and beverage.
Anyone care to share any recipes/menu ideas?
One source said caraway, thyme, and lemon zest are good w/ ground kangaroo.
If we are going to fry the alligator, I need a coating that is gluten free (no wheat, rye, or barley) altho if that is the only suggestion u have, post it anyway and I will try to adapt it.

I did the alligator using potato flour dredge w/ cayenne and garlic spices, egg& lime juice wash, and corn meal coating, then fried = yummy!
Served it w/ a spicy remoulade sauce. Even good as cold left over today.
Did the ground kangaroo with egg, rice bread crumbs, lime zest, and minced onion& garlic, w/ a pinch of caraway. And grilled it. Found it to be very soft meat. Seemed 9( today.
All in all, we had fois gras, wild boar, venison, deer, two forms of bison, yak, 'roo, alligator, emu, rabbit, quail, guinea hen, and Cornish hen.

Horse is relatively easy to obtain here, both smoked/salted cuts of older animals and really tender foal steaks. There is some animosity towards it though, which stems mostly from horse consumption being linked to the old norse heathen religion when the country became christian around 1000AD.
