Fried Gator Tails in North Georgia

We weren’t sure about this, but James assures us that it is possible to find alligator meat in the north Georgia mountains. If you decide to try them at Southern Twist instead of wrestling your own gator, they are delicious and worth trying just so you can say you did.

2 lbs. alligator tail chunks
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ c. powdered milk
½ c. flour
2 ¼ c. cornmeal

Heat fryer to 400°F. Salt and pepper the gator tail chunks. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl. Roll gator tails in mixture and deep fry 3 to 5 minutes until brown. Be careful not to overcook. Serve with twisted ranch (homemade from Southern Twist) or your favorite dressing.
