Snakes on the Road

Apparently, all snakes are edible and quite tasty. Fortunately for any road forager gourmand they are also quite easily found pre-killed and ready for consumption on almost any rural roadway. You might be waiting for the "tastes like chicken" line but the truth is that snakes DO NOT taste like chicken. To anyone with a sophisticated palate and an appreciation for the subtleties provided by nourishment that has not been overly-processed and pumped full of hormones, antibiotics and additives, snake has a deliciously gamey flavor with undertones of fish. In order to savor this unique flavor, any recipe featuring snake should be only lightly spiced and not overcooked. For a simple recipe that also shows how incredibly easy it is to skin and gut your reptilian roadkill, check out this YouTube video. A snakeskin belt, a wallet, a pair of snazzy slippers AND dinner - What a fantastic find!!!
