       Title: Crispy Rattlesnake Coils
  Categories: Appetizers
       Yield: 10 Servings
  
       1    Rattlesnake; cut in strips
            Flour
            Salt & Pepper
            Crisco
  
   PREPARATION Cut rattlesnake into 8 strips about 1/4 thick. Salt and
   pepper lightly. Put flour into a container that can be covered. Add
   strips. Shake. Refrigerate for about two hours. This will allow the
   flour to become sticky and while the Crisco is heating in a deep
   fryer, pull the pieces apart and re-flour the pieces again.  Add
   flour if necessary. When the Crisco shortening is hot, add only
   enough snake strips so that all pieces are covered by the hot grease.
   Fry until golden brown. Dump into a container that has been prewarmed
   in the oven. Continue frying the rest of the rattlesnake strips.
   
   NOTE:  The fried rattlesnake strips will appear to be coiled!
   
   SERVING Use a basket lined with a cloth napkin. Add the fried, coiled
   snake pieces. Cover with the napkin.
