Debbie's Story

We love fried gator here is south Louisiana. Anytime we have a fish fry we always try to get our hands on some gator. Certain times of the year it is pretty easy to find. We only like the tail though. The Creole sauce recipe I got from a local goes well with the gator. I also use it with my boiled crawfish. My husband is a puriest, he doesnt want any dip for anything. I am a dipper,lol.

Thanx for getting back to me. I eventually found it @ a local specialty store. I'll be making these in a couple weeks as a welcome home supper, and the day is not coming soon enough. :)

Hey Debbie! Where exactly would I find creole mustard? And if I'm unable to locate any, what could I substitute it with?
