6. Mix together the flour and cornmeal.

7. Dip the gator meat in the flour and cornmeal mix.

8. Carefully place the floured meat into the hot oil.

9. Fry for 2-3 minutes until they turn golden brown.

10. Remove and drain on paper towels.

11. Season with Cajun Seasoning while they are hot!

12. Garnish: Sit the Gator Bites on top of some lettuce leaves. Decorate with slices of lemon and red peppers.

Set out a small bowl of lemon wedges for folks who want to squeeze a little on their Gator Bites.

Enjoy!
