    I don't see the problem, a seafood stand that sells shrimp and crab cakes on the beach could easily add a little crocodile. Instead of a nuisance they become an asset.

    Crocodile with mango and basil sauce
    12 oz. crocodile meat, cut into thin slices
    1 oz. peanut oil
    1 oz. basil leaves
    1 oz. parsley
    1 garlic bud, chopped fine
    4 tsp white wine vinegar
    1 C olive oil
    1 medium mango, stone removed and peeled
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Heat peanut oil in a frying pan, sauté seasoned crocodile pieces for about three minutes then set aside and keep warm. Blend basil, garlic, parsley, vinegar and olive oil in a food processor until smooth, set aside. Slice mango thinly and arrange on plate. Place crocodile slices in the center, drizzle basil sauce around the plate and garnish with fresh herbs.

    Basically treat crocodile like pork or chicken using the same recipes. To keep it simple use shake and bake. Seems like cheating but good is good. :D

    Shark meat is dense. When fried it doesn't come to the top of the pan when it's done.
    How about crock meat? A person I met fishing says he get's it once-twice a year. I may take him up on the offer. The only time I ever ate it was in a restaurant, and it was so strong with garlic, I couldn't eat it.
