These gorgeous bright red Lobsters are dipped in our homemade breading and fried to a golden brown crunch… absolutely breath taking!
BEST LOBSTER TAIL
Growing up in Corbin, KY, we loved when we got to go fishing for cold water lobster off the Atlantic coast side of the state. As most of you are well aware, the coastal side of Kentucky near the Hamptons is a hidden treasure for deep sea fishing. Alright, maybe here in Kentucky we don’t have a fancy ocean and we can’t fish for lobster unless they are in Red Lobster’s tank! What we do have are incredible folks, amazing cooks, and phenomenal memories of growing up in the country! As kids, we ate tons of fish that we caught in ponds, but not once did we ever eat or even see a lobster. Today, we love lobster, but nothing compares to our breaded fried lobster tails. The typical side dish for us is our Baked Potato.
Our homemade breading recipe is the pizazz in this dish. Once you’ve realized how amazing our Lobster Tail recipe is, you’ll appreciate that this is the most unique and most delicious you’ve ever eaten. The appearance is spectacular, the taste is off-the-charts amazing… that magnificent red lobster, the breading fried golden brown with that perfect white lobster meat.
Our Fried Tail is not just gorgeous, the breading makes it scrumptious, and the lobster meat is light and delectable. This recipe will be a huge hit for the holidays and can be paired with nearly any side dish.
The appearance of our Fried Tail is incredible. This will be your perfect Lobster recipe!
