I am very curious and fascinated now about the taste of crocodile but honestly I’m doubt if I'll give it a try for a sort of taste., while Lolong captivity became popular these days and still fresh from my thought why this creature being haunt. Eww, couldn’t imagined eating a croc. See yah later alligator, Hahaha..!
Anyway, actually Croc is pretty darn good and I’ve heard it described as a cross between chicken and crab, a succulent white meat with a delicious and unique flavor. It’s become a very popular meat these days and is part of a developing cuisine . Crocodile or alligator meat considered more nutritional and healthier compare to other domestic chicken especially when it comes to fat and cholesterol content. Tail portion mostly considered as the best section of croc meat and best cooked in the same manner as lean pork or chicken.
Aussies definitely know how to cook this kind of exotic food! So, for those people looking for something new to taste, here’s an exciting burger recipe to try from Australian native cuisine!
