Alligator Legs

While walking through Chinatown, I couldn't resist...the delicious outcome is deserving of 3 photo posts (serves 2):
1 1/2 lb alligator legs (from your friendly alligator dealer)
1 cup olive oil
3/4 cups soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
5 parsley stems
4 cups chicken stock
5 thyme sprigs
1/4 cup orange juice
salt-to taste
pepper-to taste
1. Marinate alligator legs with olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, and parsley for 1.5 hours.

2. Pat dry, season, and brown legs in pan, on high heat.
3. Add chicken stock, thyme, and orange juice; bring to a boil.
4. Turn the heat down and simmer for ~3 hours, or until meat falls off the bone.
Serve with: ginger flavored rice, sticky rice, coconut rice, snow peas, and/or sauteed carrots.
