– 1 lb alligator meat, cut into bite-sized cubes
– 1/4 cup fresh cranberries
– 2 tablespoons maple syrup
– 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1 tablespoon soy sauce
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– Skewers, soaked in water if wooden
1. Begin by preparing the cranberry glaze. In a small saucepan, combine the cranberries, maple syrup, and fresh rosemary. Cook over medium-low heat until the cranberries burst and the mixture thickens slightly. Set aside.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Add the alligator meat cubes and toss until well-coated. Allow the meat to marinate for 20-30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
3. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
4. Thread the marinated alligator cubes onto skewers, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
5. Grill the skewers for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until the alligator meat is cooked through and slightly charred.
6. During the last few minutes of grilling, brush the cranberry glaze onto the skewers, coating them evenly. This will impart a tangy and vibrant flavor to the dish.
7. Remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a couple of minutes.
8. Serve the Rosemary Cranberry Glazed Alligator Skewers as a stunning appetizer or a unique main dish for your Christmas dinner. The combination of tender alligator meat, aromatic rosemary, and tangy cranberry glaze will surely captivate your guests’ palates and add a touch of adventure to your festive spread.
