Say hello to my little friend..

I think I've mentioned my little friend, Gordon the Gecko, here on the blog before so I thought it was time to post some pictures of him.

I'm sorry about the poor lighting in the pictures but I didn't want to use the flash in case it pissed him off. :)

I know this is a food blog so I have included a recipe for Iguana stew below the pictures. Not that I condone cooking and/or eating your pets in any way, shape or form. Unless it's a pig. Or a duck. Or a cow. Or.... ;)


1 iguana
2 onions
1 tsp salt
1/2 lb carrots
1 tsp culantro
1 small ball recardo
vinegar, lime
1 sweet pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 lb cabbage
2 cloves garlic
1/4 lb tomato
coconut oil


1. Skin and clean the iguana. Wash thoroughly in vinegar and lime.
2. Rub in seasonings - salt, black pepper, recardo, onions, garlic, culantro and sweet pepper. Leave to stand for about 20 mins.
3. Place enough coconut oil in pot to cover the bottom and heat it up. When hot, put in meat. Keep turning and adding a little water for about 30 mins.
4. Add cut up carrots, cabbage and tomato. Cook for another 30 mins.


  1. just put him in a bentos box and call him lunch ;-)

  2. That would just confuse him. He's used to being called Gordie now! ;)

  3. well maybe next time you can come up with something for him with crickets & worms!
