Gator Tacos



What’s another great gator recipe you ask? Gator tacos! So in all honesty, Jason’s smoked ribs win first place in the Tastiest Thing On My Plate contest, but I SWEAR the gator tacos take a close second. And this was validated by all the other gator taco eaters, too.


1 lb gator meat (chicken or beef could be used instead)
1/4 c Dijon mustard
1/4 c cider vinegar
3 T sriracha (or other hot sauce)
1/2 head cabbage, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 cheddar cheese, shredded
1 package corn tortillas
1/2 c mayonnaise
3 T sriracha
olive oil


Mix the mustard, vinegar, and sriracha in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the chopped meat and set aside (this can be done ahead of time, too, and left to marinate.) Chop the toppings and shred the cheese. In another small bowl, mix the 1/2 c mayo and the 3 T of sriracha for the sauce. Set aside. In a large skillet, heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to medium high heat. Throw in the gator (or chicken or beef) and cook until done. Gator takes about 5-7 minutes, like chicken, and it should be cooked all the way through. While the gator is cooking, heat another skillet to medium heat which will be used to warm the tortillas. The corn tortillas are best when cooked in a little bit of oil. Put a tablespoon or so of olive oil on the skillet and put down a tortilla. It should take about 1-2 minutes each side. The tortillas should be golden.

A hot tortilla + gator + cabbage + sliced tomatoes + shredded cheese + a little bit of spicy mayo = a satisfying and easy meal. (Catching the gator, though, is a whole different story….)
