Poached Python steaks with curried garlic and lemon grass sauce


Python Steaks (1 kg)
Shallots (4-5 peeled and sliced)
Turmeric powder (1 tablespoon)

Lime wedges
Lemon grass (ten stems, peeled; tender parts finely chopped and pounded)
Paprika (2 tablespoons)
White rice wine Salt (2 tablespoons)
Peanut oil (2 tablespoons)
Spring water (2 quarts)


First boil and poach the steaks with lemon peel, rought lemon grass stems, adn skins of shallots, garlic and ginger in the quart of spring water. When the flesh is soft, take the Python steaks out and let cool. Next, saute’ shallots on low heat until lightly brown and add the ginger, garlic and all other spices. Next turn up the heat until the toasted aroma arise from the pot. Add flaked Python, rice wine, and more spring water and reduce heat for 10 minutes.

    I just watched a program on Animal Planet about the Burmese python spreading through Florida. They cut open a large specimen and the meat looked wonderful! Is fresh Burmese python meat available on the market yet? I certainly hope that they start selling meat from the captured specimens. I have printed and saved your recipe, now I hope to get some fresh python to go with it!

    I fried some of my 10 year old reticulated python. I cooked in hot oil after breading with FishFry. Looked, smelled, and tasted great; but it wouldn’t go away. I chewed for 15 minutes before it began to dissolve. I’m glad I ate part of her, just for the experience; but I don’t need to do it again. She was my favorite pet.

    Reminds me of the recipe for carp.
    “Bake for two hours at 300 deg sandwiched between two cow patties. Then throw away the carp & eat the cow manure.
