Yes! You can and it’s super easy to do too! Depending on the size of a lobster tail, you can do cooking in 4-7 minutes and there’s no waiting for an oven to warm up or water to boil! So now you know how to enjoy a healthy lobster dinner in no time at all with this super easy method!
First, you need to get all your ingredients together. A good idea would be to use a food processor or a blender. One good ingredient for a great marinade is garlic. Using fresh garlic instead of dried will give you a much more authentic taste. You can also add a clove of garlic powder to your marinade if you want to make it that much more rich and spicy.
Next, you’ll need to get the meat. Lobster is actually one of the tougher meats so you might want to try a lower sodium marinade to help soften it up. Just add a half cup of this to your recipe. You can do this as a stand-alone recipe or with any seafood you’re preparing. You’ll definitely notice the difference in taste once it’s cooked and you’ll find you don’t need the salt.
Next, it’s time to cook your recipe. If you have an air Fryer then that’s perfect. Just place the tail on a plate in the oven and put the recipe inside. If not, you can just lay the whole tail on a baking sheet in the oven or on a foil pan to brown it. Once it’s browned, remove it from the oven and let it cool.
The nice thing about fried lobster tails is how easy they are to prepare. As long as you have the ingredients inside you’ve pretty much got it done. It’s a relatively simple recipe to duplicate and you can make sure the ingredients are fresh or frozen if you don’t have them nearby. If you’ve never cooked seafood recipes with a butter mixture then it really can’t get any easier.
To make the garlic butter sauce for your air fryer lobster tails, you’ll need a clove of garlic, some oil, some lemon juice, some cornstarch, and a touch of salt. In a bowl, you’ll mix all of these ingredients together until they form a smooth paste. Then just put it in the air fryer and let it cook on low for about two minutes. When you remove it from the pan, it should be golden brown and you can use it as usual.
If you plan on serving this dish to your family and guests, you might want to consider using a little bit of cheese on top. It really doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Just dip a serving up into the mixture and place it on top of whatever else you would like to put on top of it. You’ll have a delicious and easy dinner that everyone will love.
Overall, frying lobster meat in a skillet is fast and easy. If you haven’t tried this particular recipe before it’s time to give it a shot. You might be pleasantly surprised at the results. If you are a seafood fan this one is a must try recipe.
To really complete this dish, you should consider serving it with some potatoes, a piece of French fries, and a little bit of Creole seasoning. This will give it that nice, mild flavor you were looking for. To make sure your meat is cooked to perfection, you should always let it cook thoroughly and carefully. It might be helpful to use the air fryer for this part of the recipe as well.
