Python recipe needed
Trying to find recipes for cooking python meat. Very hard to find on the internet or in cookbooks.
Any help would be appreciated. The meat comes in a 1lb. package, very tender and pink.
Wow! This is a first for me! My initial thought would be to either cook it quickly (like fried), or a long time (like brunswick stew). Any idea what it tastes like?
I would imagine that rattlesnake recipes would be a good place to start. In any case, cook it like you would any delicate white meat... like firm white fish or even chicken or pork tenderloin.
I can only assume you live in S. Florida?!
I should think that you'd cook the mean of a Python the same way you'd cook the meat of other snakes. Generally speaking, you could smoke it, bread it and fry it like chicken, brown it and use it in a soup or stew or pickle it.
These folks appear to have some experience in that venue:

Cooks very similarly to alligator tail. It can be very tough. One trick is to cut against the grain.
