Recipe by Florida's state chef Justin Timineri

| 11/6/2013

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup key lime juice
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 4 leaves fresh thyme, chopped
  • 4 leaves fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 pounds alligator ribs

Citrus Glaze

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  •   salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup sweet butter

DIRECTIONS:

Prepare a citrus marinade by combining all ingredients except alligator ribs in a glass bowl; blend thoroughly. Set aside 1/2 cup marinade for basting. Pour remaining marinade over ribs and thoroughly coat all pieces; refrigerate in covered bowl or sealed zipper-type bag for 1 to 3 hours.

Remove ribs from marinade and discard used marinade. Heat stove top grill or gas grill to medium heat. Grill ribs for 45 minutes or until tender, basting frequently with reserved 1/2 cup of marinade. Prepare Citrus Glaze while ribs are grilling by combining all glaze ingredients, except butter, and simmering for 15 minutes or until thickened. Add butter in small pieces; heat until butter is melted. Keep warm at low heat until ready to serve. Remove ribs from grill and baste with Citrus Glaze.
