I caught a couple of turtles. I have made soup with them before. Does anyone have any other ways they cook them? I was thinking of trying some of it on the grill. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

I generally parboil the meat then dice it up in small pieces, then fry it in olive oil
with diced onions and peppers till lightly browned. Taste almost like sautéed pork.

There is only one time and one time only in a man's life when he should eat turtle. That's when he has been lost in the wilderness for weeks and stumbles upon a cabin and the only food in the cabin is Turtle soup.

I lived on turtles and groundhogs during my last term (yea, term, a long time ago) at Penn State. I liked turtle better but leftover groundhog was good turtle bait.

Put in crockpot til almost ready to fall off the bone, then take meat off the bones, watch for the small round bones, look like teeth. Take your large pieces of meat and bread it and deep fry. Use the small pieces for soup.

The last couple times I sautéed some mushrooms and onions in a skillet. Once they were almost some I put the turtle meat in. To brown it. Once browned i put everything in the crockpot. Mix a packet of mushroom gravy in and then let it go for awhile. Meat always tender. I usual serve it over noodles
