I don't quite have the taste buds that my wife has, so admittedly, the python right out of the package was not very appetizing to me.
Coyote, do you mean did we try any without and seasoning/ special prep? No. This meat would most likely be like chewing 5 pieces of bubble gum and the same time. Even after all that tenderizing, it was still chewy. Small pieces were the key. Taste, the fritters did take a fair amount of the original taste away. Although the small fillets, even with the seasoning, still allowed the taste and feel of the python to come through. Plain, it may have been too much for me to swallow, literally. My wife may have enjoyed it. She eats escargot afterall.
