3.) Add the Breading/Batter Mix to a shallow bowl. Add the eggs and water to a separate shallow bowl.
4.) In a small bowl, mix the brown, Worcestershire and tomato sauces together – adding as much or as little of each as you like. Peel, finely chop and stir in the shallots, then set aside.
5.) Add the alligator tails to the egg mixture and toss to coat. Dredge each piece in the Breading/Batter Mix and add to the oil.
