BATON ROUGE - 2une In's June Chef of the Month is Lava Cantina. J.P. Lockhart joined us in the 2une In kitchen Wednesday morning to whip up some alligator tacos.

Recipe: Alligator Marinade

1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Peach Pico de Gallo

1 4 oz cup diced peaches in juice
2 cups diced tomatoes
2 TBS diced jalapenos
1/2 cup diced white onions
1 TBS chopped cilantro
2 tsp salt
1 TBS fresh squeezed lime juice

Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Gringo Bandito Mayo

1 cup mayo
1/2 cup Gringo Bandito hot sauce
1 small lime (juiced)

Marinate 6 ounces of alligator tail meat for 4 hours. Saute alligator for 7-8 minutes in the marinade, or until you see the pieces firm up.
Stuff each taco tortilla with 2 oz gator, 1/2 oz shredded lettuce, 1/2 oz cheddar cheese, 1/2 oz peach pico de gallo. Top with Gringo Bandito mayo and serve immediately.
