Boneless Wild Alligator Filet, Water and Sodium Phosphate
St. Peter’s Brand alligator filet is machine tenderized twice to ensure tender, flavorful, white meat with a light texture. Prior to packaging, the product is placed on a drip belt to preserve peak probability in maintaining the original weight of the meat once defrosted.
The meat in St. Peter’s Brand wild pack is primarily tail meat. We estimate the product to be 80% tail meat and the remainder to be equal parts of the back strap, rib meat and jaw meat. No red meat is used in our product.
Under proper handling and storage procedures, 24 months from date of production.
Alligator Meat Recipe
Fried Alligator Bites
Crunchy, juicy, meaty bites bursting with Cajun seasoning and just enough kick to put a smile on your face. Try the St. Peter Projects’ family recipe below and taste what you’ve been missing.
1 pound wild alligator meat
2 tablespoons Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon fresh, minced garlic
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
Tabasco to taste (We like it hot!)
2 cups flour
Oil for frying
Honey mustard for dipping
Getting down to business…
- Use a paper towel to dry off the excess moisture from the alligator meat. Place 1 tablespoon of the Cajun seasoning, garlic and Tabasco sauce in a baking dish. Lay the alligator pieces in the mixtures, flip to coat both sides. Cover and set aside.
- In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, mustard, egg and a few more drops of Tabasco. Use another bowl to combine the flour and remaining tablespoon of cajun seasoning.
- Place the alligator in the flour mixture, flip and tap off excess. Briefly submerge alligator in the buttermilk and then return it to the flour, lightly dusting each side. Place on a tray and continue the process with the remaining alligator meat pieces.
- Oil should register 350 degrees. Gently shake off any remaining flour and place the alligator pieces in the skillet in a single layer.
- Fry in batches, using a spatula or tongs to turn occasionally. Cook until the pieces are golden brown and cooked through – about 8 – 10 minutes. Once complete, place the alligator on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Transfer to a plate, give yourself a dollop of honey mustard and enjoy!

ST. PETER PROJECTS' HISTORY
CHIP HENRY, FOUNDER
Chip Henry’s been living water and seafood from his earliest beginnings. He was raised near, in, around, and on the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. His experience in the seafood industry began at the young age of 10 when, after school and on weekends, he’d go crabbing and sell his catch to neighbors and friends. In grade school and thru his high school years, Chip shucked oysters for local restaurants. In 1969, after 6 years in the army and in search of work following the devastation caused by Hurricane Camille…
In 1984, Chip married, and as his family grew, so too, did his business ventures. He began working with an aquaculture biologist near the Sea of Galilee in Israel to introduce, market, and sell St. Peter’s Fish, otherwise known as Tilapia, in the American marketplace.
Chip’s early experience with adversity contributed to his solid work ethic. His lifelong dealings with seafood provide a rich knowledge base for both product and market trends. And his love of the seafood industry has spread to his son, Tommy, and daughter, Tina, who’ve joined St. Peter Projects with hopes of maintaining and developing relationships that keep seafood moving on a global scale.
