If you want to try Southern Deep Fried Lobster recipe, then I highly suggest giving this one a try !! The combination of ingredients makes the best


– Cornmeal: 2 cups
– Flour: 1/2 cup
– Salt to taste
– Pepper to taste
– Paprika: 1 teaspoon
– Cayenne Pepper: 1 teaspoon
– Garlic Powder: 1 teaspoon
– Onion Powder: 1 teaspoon
– Lobster Tails: 4 lbs (cleaned in the shell)
– Oil: 2 qts for deep-frying


To start with, combine together the cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder in a gallon size zip-lock bag, shaking well.

while keeping tail in the shell, you can clean lobster tails; set aside.

Take a deep fryer or large, deep skillet (such as a cast iron pan) and heat in vegetable oil over 365 degrees.

You’ll want to place half of the lobster tails in the bag, shake well to coat the tails complete. Once done, you may want to remove tails, set on a rack over a tray to catch any drippings and keep the work area clean. And please repeat with remaining tails.

Okay now, you should deep fry one lobster tail at a time in the oil until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Finally, be sure you let fried tails dry on paper towels.
