2 cups cornmeal 1/2 cup all-purpose flour salt and pepper to taste 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder 4 pounds fresh lobster tails, cleaned and halved but still in shell (I would take the tails out of the shell. That is the way we have had them.) 2 quarts oil for deep frying
In a gallon sized plastic closeable bag combine, cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder. Shake well. Place one half of a lobster tail at a time in to the bag. Shake to coat the tails completely. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large skilled to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Place one coated lobster tail at a time into the oil. Cook until the lobster turns white and the coating is lightly browned. Let the fried tails dry on paper towels.
