peppers Alligators... Discard head, feet and tail. Wash and cut into
individual portions. (so how much do 3 adult alligators weigh anyway?)
Borrow, beg or steal huge cooking pot. Use medium heat for oil and
garlic. Add alligator portions, turning often. Add tomatoes, bring to
boil, simmer, add salt, pepper, red pepper, oregano, bay leaves, and
parsley. Cover and simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Last 30 minutes add onions,
peppers, zucchini. Last 5 min. add sliced olives. Serve with salad
topped with favorite Italian dressing and crisp bread. "New Orleans
Cooks The Italian Way" Locovozzi & Mollicone (note: this is a real
recipe and there is a whole Italian area of New Orleans which as you
can see is spicy like cajun, but truely Italian. I have though of ways
to make this with some other meat, because we just don't have
alligators in Milwaukee! Maybe buffalo?) Courtesy of Shareware RECIPE
