Not sure how to cook crocodile? This barbeque marinade with mango, lime and ginger should give you the confidence to try it yourself.


350g Diced crocodile steaks

  • 1 Mango, sliced into 2cm cubes


  • 1 Mango, sliced into 2cm cubes
  • 1 Whole red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 2 Cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1cm cube Fresh ginger, finely sliced
  • 1tbsp Olive oil
  • Juice and rind of 1 lime


  • STEP 1
    Mix the sliced chilli, garlic, ginger, grated lime rind, lime juice and olive oil together in a bowl then cover the chunks of crocodile meat and mango until it is soaked in the marinade
  • STEP 2
    Allow to marinate for anywhere between an hour and 24 hours in the fridge.
  • STEP 3
    Thread the meat and mango onto a skewer, about three chunks of each per skewer should make six or seven skewers. If you are using bamboo skewers rather than metal ones make sure to soak them in water first so they don’t burn.
  • STEP 4
    Cook the skewers on the barbeque or, if the weather’s not up to it, under the grill for around 4-5 minutes, turning half way through. The skewers are done when the mango is a little blackened on the edges.
