Beer Battered Lobster Lollipops


  • 5 lobster tails
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • TBS Old Bay
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Mexican lager, room temperature
  • lemon
  • chives
  • Oil for frying
  • Old Bay Crema:
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 TBS Old Bay seasoning


  1. To make the sauce: combine all the ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Remove shell from lobster. Use kitchen scissors to cut down the centre of the front and back of the shell and carefully remove the lobster tails. Pat dry.
  3. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, paprika, Old Bay and season with salt and pepper. Slowly pour in the beer until the mixture resembles a thick pancake batter.
  4. Heat frying oil to 375 degrees F.
  5. Dredge the lobster tails in the batter covering completely. Fry in oil 2 minutes a side if not fully submerged. Fry until crispy and golden and remove to a wire rack with drip tray or paper towel.
  6. Insert wooden skewer into the fried lobsters to create lollipops. Cut the skewers length if needed.
  7. Serve drizzled with Old Bay crema, lots of chopped chives and lemon wedges on the side.
