Crocodile skewers and stir-fried noodles
« on: August 01, 2006, 01:37:07 am »
 


Ingredients
4 servings


  • 4 crocodile tail fillets
  • 1 ginger root, grated
  • 2 limes
  • salt and pepper, to taste

    Stir-fried noodles


  • 200g rice noodles or egg noodles
  • 1½ tsp sesame oil, or as needed
  • 1 cup shredded bok choy
  • 1 red pepper cut in julienne
  • 1 cup of beansprouts
  • 1 cup julienne carrot
  • 6 tbsp oil for stir-frying, or as needed
  • extra soy sauce, salt or sugar for seasoning, as desired



  • Method

    Cut the crocodile meat into bite-sized cubes (about 2-3cm diameter). Add the ginger and lime juice and marinate for 20 minutes.

    Meanwhile, prepare the other ingredients. In a large saucepan, add enough water to cover the noodles and bring to the boil. Add the noodles, stirring to separate. Cook until the noodles are al dente - tender, but still firm. Drain thoroughly. Rinse with cold water, drain again, and toss with the sesame oil.

    Wash and shred the bok choy, pepper and carrot. In a heavy-based frying pan or wok, heat 2½ tablespoons of oil over medium-high to high heat. When the oil is hot, add the vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Season with a bit of soy sauce and/or sugar while stir-frying, if desired. Remove from the wok.

    Heat 1½ tablespoons of oil in the wok. When the oil is hot, add the noodles. Stir-fry quickly, stirring to coat the noodles in the oil and making sure they don't stick to the pan. Taste and add salt and/or soy sauce as desired.

    Finally, in a very hot griddle, cook the skewered crocodile for 30 seconds each side (medium rare) and serve on a bed of the noodles.

    Can you recommend where to buy the crocodile from? Tesco or Morrisons?
