Ingredients - Serves 4

4 Boneless Crocodile Steaks, (approx 6oz each)
3 tbsp Butter, melted
1tsp Salt
1tbsp Paprika
1tsp ground Cayenne Pepper
½tsp ground Black Pepper
½tsp ground White Pepper
½tsp dried Thyme
½tsp dried Oregano
½tsp dried Chives
1tsp Garlic Powder


Mix all the seasonings in a bowl. Pour onto a plate.

Brush the steaks with 2 tbsp of the melted butter. Dip both sides of each steak into the seasoning mix.

Place a dry, heavy cast iron skillet over a high heat for 5 to 7 minutes. Place steak in pan and sear for 2 minutes, turn, brush with remaining 1tbsp butter and cook for a further 5 to 6 minutes.
Crocodile does lend itself to being marinaded, as it can undoubtedly be a dry meat if not handled carefully. One of our customers has had terrific results on a bar-b-q using just foil, a knob of butter and sprinkled lime juice - the same results can be achieved in the oven, we've tried it!

Here is a simple marinade that works equally well - pour the remaining juices over the crocodile fillet once you've pan fried it for about 6 minutes, and let it simmer for a similar length of time.

Lime or Lemon Juice, from freshly squeezed fruit
Fresh Garlic Clove, pressed
Fresh Ginger, about 1 teaspoon
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, two tablespoons
Freshly ground black pepper and Sea Salt
You can add a teaspoon of Lemongrass if desired.
