Just the Snake

These recipes don't call for de-boning the meat prior to cooking. You'll have to deal with them while eating. It's no big deal. But you will need to start with a cleaned, skinned snake. I don't recommend handling it with the head still attached - I buy my snake meat cleaned and packaged.

BAKED RATTLESNAKE  
 
1 rattlesnake carcass
1 cup half n half or milk
1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 limes, sliced thin
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. rosemary

 

Cut snake into 3-inch sections and place in a large baking dish. Cover with cream or milk and add the mushrooms, limes, basil, pepper, and rosemary. Cover tightly.

Bake in 300 degree oven for 60-70 minutes or until done.


ROASTED RATTLESNAKE
 
Cut snake into 2 inch pieces. Place pieces on a skewer and roast over glowing coals, keeping the skewer constantly turning. When the meat quits sizzling, it is done.
SOUTHERN FRIED RATTLESNAKE  
1 egg
salt to taste
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. seasoning salt mix
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp. pepper
flour
1 rattlesnake

Cut snake meat into 4 inch lengths. Beat egg and milk. Mix spices with  flour in a separate bowl. Preheat deep fat fryer with cooking oil. Dip snake into egg mixture and then in flour mixture and place it in hot oil. Cook until golden brown and crispy like fried fish. Serve with french fries.

Rattlesnake Cocktail

1 1/2 oz whiskey
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
1 egg white

1 tsp. sugar

Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and serve with a cherry.
