This unusual preparation for lobster is great for a special occasion! This one's a KEEPER!!
This was different, The lobster meat was very sweet. My lobster never turned white, I did not get that. Also I think my oil was to hot. My lobster browned to fast. But it was still good. Next time and there will be a next. I will check my oil temp before cooking.
It was good- I think next time I will put equal amounts of cornmeal and flour for the mixture. It had a great taste and it did make the lobster meat very very sweet. I will make this again
it was wonderful i lve lobster and i am always looking for new wayss to cook them it turned out beautiful.and yummy
Perfect! Our fishmonger gave us a bag of frozen rock lobster tails and we needed something new to do with them. My husband wanted them again the next night. I added a little more spice to the mix otherwise perfect. Thank you.
I was looking for a fun informal way to serve up lobster meat, and this is a good one. We used chunks of frozen lobster tail meat instead of whole lobster tails. It was very sweet and very good. I don't like spicy food, so I substituted regular pepper instead of cayenne and added a little garlic salt for flavor. It was a bit on the bland side, but still absolutely delicious and complimented the delicate flavor of the lobster meat perfectly. A keeper recipe for sure.
I added a photo for your recipe. We fried a giant lobster tail for my husband's 50th birthday last night. The rest of us had normal sized tails. Your daddy's recipe is superb! The seasonings did not try to compete with the lobster flavor. It was the perfect blend of savory sweet. I wanna do it again!
Great for a lobster lover!!
