Crocodile has white and delicious meat - delicate in flavour so use fresh tropical fruits which will compliment the taste of the meat.

Cook it from frozen for two minutes on either side and then allowed to stand for a few minutes.

Remove excess fat after cooking. Use only herbs or spices - Three different is recommended. If frying, use olive oil - and do not forget it is best served medium rare.
