Step1: To start off the recipe, you’ll need to Combine the cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder together in a gallon size zip-lock bag and shake well.
Step2: After that, you need to clean lobster tails while keeping tail in the shell then set them aside.
Step3: Then you’re going to get a deep fryer or large, deep skillet such as a cast iron pan and heat in vegetable oil (the oil needs to reach 365 degrees).
Step4: Make sure half of the lobster tails is placed in the bag. Always remember to shake well to coat the tails completely. Alright, go ahead and remove tails, set on a rack over a tray to catch any drippings and keep the work area clean. And yes, go ahead and repeat with the remaining tails.
Step5: Finally, deep fry one lobster tail by one in the oil until lightly browned, it takes around 4 minutes. And please let fried tails dry on paper towels.
