  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 4 scallions, diced

  • 3 cloves diced garlic

  • 2 ounce melted Garlic Butter, recipe follows

  • 2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  1. Cook gator in olive oil in a pan until cooked through; chill meat thoroughly.

  2. Add egg, mustard, scallions, garlic, Garlic Butter, red pepper and baking powder to gator in a mixing bowl. Add the flour a little at a time, adjusting until the mixture is a little looser than that of a meatball (you may not need to add the whole amount). Form into 4-inch ovals.

  3. Saute in some oil in a skillet until golden, 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minute on the second side.

  4. Place the butter in a large stand mixer and beat on low speed for 4 minutes. Add chopped garlic, shallots and granulated garlic. Beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. Turn back to low speed and add the wine and lemon juice. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Turn to low speed and add the parsley; beat 40 seconds and turn off mixer.

  5. Mix together mayo, dill, white pepper, cayenne and lemon juice in a bowl.
