Florida Seafood Recipe

Grilled Gator Kabobs

(Photo Below)
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 pound alligator meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
  assorted vegetables or fruit, cubed

For the marinade, combine orange concentrate, orange juice, soy sauce, sugar and spices in a medium glass bowl. Reserve half for basting. Add alligator cubes; stir to coat well. Marinate for at least 15 minutes or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator for increased flavor. Soak wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes to prevent them from burning. Thread marinated alligator cubes onto skewers, alternating with vegetable or fruit cubes. Heat the grill to high heat and grill kabobs for 6-8 minutes; turning once. Brush with extra marinade for the first 5 minutes. Discard any leftover marinade.
