Very moist and tasty. My kids loved this. Tasted much like fried lobster at the expensive resturants.

I adjusted the recipe for one a 4 oz. Lobster tail yields 6 bite size pieces. Also added 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning to the flour mix. Deep fried using canola oil, turned out wonderful, was not...

What a great late night snack or anytime. I used Everglades and Louisiana seasoning in place of recipe spices. My teenagers loved it! Try it you'll like it.

My family really enjoyed this as an appetizer. We served it with butter and lemon. We will make it again!

This was great. I made a Parmesan cheese sauce with flour, butter, chicken stock, and parsley to go with it. I also made homemade waffles with it for a Sunday breakfast. Delicious!

Didn't add the celery seed or paprika I also used self rising flour. My family loved it they flew off the plate! Delicious and tasty!
