Murray, Owner of Phil's on Front in Traverse City as he holds up an alligator head. "He's a pretty nice guy, but he's obviously stuffed."


Phil is helping you create some of his favorite dishes in your own kitchen every week on UpNorthLive Tonight on ABC 29&8.


This week Phil is sharing his Alligator Bites recipe:



"I'm trying to keep the balance of humans being eaten by alligators, and alligators being eaten by humans," says Phil.


Ingredients:



1 lb. Alligator meat, diced in 1/2 inch chunks



1 Sweet onion cut into chunks



3 Shallots, diced



1 oz. Chopped sage



1 Tbs. Chopped garlic



2 Cups sherry



Mayonnaise



Dijon mustard



Creole spice



Panko bread crumbs


Cooking Directions:



Saute all ingredients for one minute. Add sherry and simmer for 90 minutes, or until gator meat is tender. Cool, and chop so it becomes semi-chunky. Mix together. Mold mixture into small patties, then pan fry in oil of your choice.



"I make everything really tasty and yummy," says Phil.



Phil's sauce recommendations: Horseradish, sour cream, whole grain mustard, whole cream equal parts, jalapeno to taste.


If you can't wait until next week for a new recipe, head to Phils On Front in downtown Traverse City. Phil's on Front is located at 236 East Front Street.
