How should I cook python?

For Christmas, I received a pound of frozen python fillets. All the recipes and blog entries I've found about cooking python end with "despite my careful preparation, the python ended up tough and rubbery and we threw it out." Part of the problem is that I think it's an incredibly lean, muscular meat. A few of the preparations treated it like other snake meats, and those failed to work with python
I've called the exotic meat suppliers in the area and none of them are sure of how to treat it either. Is there a good way to cook this?
