Deep Fried Lobster

This is an easy lobster recipe to make any night of the week! I prefer to use Lobster tails for this recipe, but if you like you can use Live Maine Lobster!

  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 pounds lobster tails, cleaned and halved but still in shell
  • 2 quarts oil for deep frying

In a gallon sized plastic zip seal bag combine, cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder. Shake well. Place one half of a lobster tail at a time in to the bag. Shake to coat the tails completely. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large skillet to 365 degrees F. Place one coated lobster tail at a time into the oil. Cook until the lobster turns white and the coating is lightly browned. Let the fried tails dry on paper towels.
