Best air fryer lobster recipe ever. Want to make lobster so delicious, you’ll never go back to boiling? Try our lobster tails cooked in an air fryer! This healthy lobster recipe is easy, quick, and only uses the best ingredients.

What are the difficulties of cooking lobster tails in an air fryer?

The difficulty of cooking lobsters in an air fryer is that the low temperature may not be enough to completely cook them. In order to cook them in an air fryer, it’s best to lower the temperature by about 25 degrees and add a little oil or butter.

In addition, if you are cooking multiple pieces at once, it is best to make sure you have a large enough pan in order for them not to touch each other.

Which spices are the best to use for lobster tails?

Spices are an important part of cooking lobster. They bring out the best flavors and make the dish more aromatic.

Some spices like rosemary, thyme, and garlic provide a nice flavor but also add a nice aroma to the dish. Others like bay leaves and cloves can be overpowering for your taste buds and too strong in smell.

When cooking lobster in an air fryer, it is best to use spices that work well with seafood like lemon pepper, Old Bay seasoning, and paprika for a milder taste or smoked paprika for a smoky flavor.

What are the benefits of cooking lobster in a fryer?

The benefits of fried lobster tails are that you can save money by buying less expensive lobsters and because you don’t need to turn up your stove or oven it is a much more energy-efficient option.
