Intriguing recipes abound on the interwebz. We are searching for something good for the crockpot, but reptilian repasts are not presently in the offing.
Take for example this one. The full recipe is here.
Iguana in Curry Sauce
Iguana is considered a delicacy, and you might find someone in your yard during dry season trying to catch one that just ran across the street. Okay, we’ve never tried it, but I do have a recipe for it! Maybe we’ll try it someday…
5 Tbsp. Lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Curry powder
3 Cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, chopped
Leaves from 1 stalk celery, chopped
1 small hot pepper, chopped fine
2 chicken bouillon cubes or 2 tsp. bouillon powder
2 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
2 tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper
Cleaning the Iguana
Hang the iguana by the head. Cut off the feet and the crest on the back.
No, that’s not the whole thing. Go to the full recipe. We suggest getting a couple of Cornish game hens to practice upon. After that garlic and hot pepper and bouillon cubes, the taste can’t be much different.
