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.

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!
