The combination of sweet and spicy flavors, along with textures from the lobster, noodles, and vegetables creates a dish that is truly unforgettable.

The garlic and shallot give the dish a deep aromatic flavor, while the lemongrass and Thai chilies provide a slight kick.

The egg noodles are cooked to perfection and the lobster is lightly cooked to bring out its natural sweetness.

Ginger Scallion Lobster (蔥薑龍蝦)

Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just want to enjoy a delicious meal, Ginger Scallion Lobster is a great choice!

The lobster pieces are succulent and juicy, and the flavorful Cantonese sauce is a delightful mix of sweet, savory, and a hint of spice.

The garlic and ginger provide a strong aroma, while the spring onion adds a hint of freshness.

Tip: To ensure the lobster pieces remain juicy, be sure to stir-fry them quickly over high heat. To thicken the sauce, add a small amount of potato starch slurry and mix well. This will give the sauce an extra depth of flavor.

Cantonese Lobster with Ginger and Scallion

When dinner is ready, this Cantonese Lobster with Ginger and Scallion dish will be a masterpiece.

It’s a classic combination of tastes and textures, with the sweetness of the lobster, the fragrant aroma of ginger, the crunch of scallion, and the warmth of spices.

It’s sure to be a hit with your family and friends.

Tip: When preparing the lobster, make sure to crack the shells before deep-frying. This will make the lobster more tender and the spices will be absorbed more easily.

Cantonese Lobster Tail

Ah, Cantonese Lobster Tail! This classic dish is a delightful combination of sweet, salty, and spicy flavors.

The crunch of the fresh lobster tails is perfectly balanced with the smooth, creamy sauce.

The fresh ginger and garlic add an additional layer of complexity that will delight your taste buds.

The savory black bean sauce, oyster sauce, and soy sauce blend with the white wine to give the dish its signature Cantonese flavor.

Tip: Take care when simmering the lobster tails in vegetable oil. Make sure to keep the heat low and add the lobster tails in batches to prevent overcrowding the pan. Doing this will ensure the lobster tails stay tender and juicy.

Chinese Spicy Garlic Stir Fry Lobster

I can already smell the delightful aroma of spices and seafood coming from this Chinese Spicy Garlic Stir Fry Lobster.

The lobster is tender and juicy, and the diced onions, scallions, and garlic add a delightful crunch to each bite.

The red chili pepper in fused oil gives a mild kick of heat, while the red chili flakes and soy sauce provide a depth of flavor.

The vinegar adds a bit of acidity, and the all-purpose flour (or cornstarch) helps give the lobster a nice coating and texture.

Tip: To ensure that the lobster stays juicy and tender, make sure that you don’t overcook it. Flash fry it in the oil until the exterior is golden brown and the lobster is cooked through. Serve it over steamed white rice and enjoy!

Stir-fried Lobster with Butter and Cheese

Have you ever wanted to try a unique dish that’s a combination of sweet and savory?

If so, then this stir-fried lobster with butter and cheese is the perfect meal for you!

The lobster is deliciously juicy and tender when it’s deep fried, and the sweet and savory flavors from the melted butter and cheese really bring out the natural seafood flavor.

The onions give the dish a nice crunch and the garlic adds a bit of a kick to the dish.

All of these flavors come together with a creamy sauce that’s just irresistible.

Tip: To ensure that your lobster pieces are cooked evenly and to perfection, it’s important to coat them with cornstarch before you deep fry them. This will help them stay crisp and golden brown.

Lobster Rolls with Crispy Ginger & Scallions

This Ginger Scallion Lobster roll is a delicious Asian-inspired dish with a unique combination of flavors and textures.

The lobster is cooked perfectly and its succulent flavor is highlighted by the sharp scallions, the creamy mayonnaise, and the zesty ginger.

The buttery brioche rolls provide the perfect base for this dish, making it a great option for a light lunch or dinner.

Tip: If you don’t have access to live lobsters, you can use frozen lobster tails. Just make sure to defrost them properly before cooking.

Green Onion & Ginger Lobster Recipe

This recipe requires a bit more work than your regular stir-fry, but the end result is worth it!

The combination of green onion and ginger in this Cantonese-style lobster dish lends an amazing flavor and aroma to the dish.

The lobster is fried to crunchy perfection, and the e-fu noodles are cooked just right for a delightful texture.

The sauce is made up of light soy sauce, oyster sauce, Shaoxing cooking wine, and a touch of sugar, creating a savory and sweet balance.

Tip: Make sure to get the lobster fried to a golden brown color before adding the sauce and noodles. This will create a delicious crust and ensure that the flavors of the sauce will infuse the lobster.

Yummy Asian Lobster Tacos

Who can say no to these delicious Asian Lobster Tacos?

The combination of sweet and savory flavors, with the crunchy texture of the wonton shells, and the creamy texture of the avocado, make this a recipe you won’t forget!

The lobster is cooked in a chili sauce, giving it a unique and delicious flavor, while the micro greens, lemon, and cilantro give it a nice freshness.

To finish it off, the tacos are topped with edible gold flakes and Aji Amarillo for a unique and special touch!

Tip: For best results, cook the lobster in the chili sauce before putting it into the tacos. This will give it an extra burst of flavor and make it even tastier!

Spicy Lobster in Garlic, Ginger, and Black Bean Sauce

If you don’t mind a little bit of heat, this Spicy Lobster in Garlic, Ginger, and Black Bean Sauce is the perfect dish for you.

The combination of sweet, spicy, and salty flavors will tantalize your taste buds.

The mixture of textures is also fantastic, with the crunch of the onion and red pepper contrasting the softness of the lobster.

The black bean sauce adds a subtle umami flavor and the garlic, ginger, and Thai chili peppers give the dish just the right amount of kick.

Tip: If you want to make this dish extra spicy, you can add extra Thai chili peppers or a few dried chili flakes. For a more mellow flavor, use fewer chili peppers and substitute white wine for the chicken broth. This will give the dish a more subtle, earthy flavor. For an even richer taste, top the lobster with a bit of black bean sauce and some green onions.

Coconut Lobster Curry

I love using coconut in my cooking, so this Coconut Lobster Curry is always a favorite of mine.

The creamy coconut milk perfectly balances the spicy flavors of the green chilies and the sweet flavor of the lobster.

The texture of the lobster is made more succulent and tender with coconut milk, while the onions and garlic give the dish a nice crunchy texture.

This dish is a great combination of sweet, savory, and spicy elements all in one!

Tip: For an extra kick, add a teaspoon of garam masala while the curry is cooking. This will add some additional flavor and make the dish even more delicious. Also, don’t be afraid to adjust the amount of chilies and salt to your own taste.

Asian Lobster Fried Rice

When nothing else will do, this Asian lobster fried rice comes through!

It is a flavorful and delicious dish that has a comforting combination of textures.

The lobster adds a succulent seafood taste, while the cashews and peanuts give it a crunchy, nutty flavor.

The fresh ginger and garlic bring a burst of flavor, while the red pepper flakes add a subtle heat.

The frozen peas and carrots give a nice pop of color and the sesame oil adds a nutty aroma.

Tip: To make this dish even more flavorful, add a pinch of salt to the eggs before scrambling them. This will help bring out the flavors of the lobster and other ingredients.

Asian Lobster Tempura with Spicy Mayo

Personally, I love a spicy mayo to dip my lobster tempura in.

The combination of the tempura-crusted lobster, the crunch of the sautéed vegetables, and the zest of the zesty lemon and lime is a perfect balance of flavors.

The crisp tempura batter accents the tender lobster and the creamy mayo contrasts the crunch.

And, the subtle sesame oil adds a nutty and fragrant flavor that brings it all together.

Tip: For an extra crunchy texture, add a few drops of sparkling water to the tempura batter. This will make the batter lighter, giving the tempura a more crisp finish.

Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi

How would you like to experience a delicious seafood dish that will have your taste buds singing?

Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi is a perfect choice for those who love seafood.

This dish combines the succulent taste of shrimp with the bold flavors of garlic, white wine, lime juice, butter, Italian spices, fresh parsley, and red pepper flakes.

All of these flavors blend together perfectly to create a flavorful scampi sauce that is further enhanced with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

The shrimp is cooked to perfection in the sauce, resulting in a delicious combination of flavors, textures, and aromas.

Tip: I recommend using jumbo shrimp for this recipe. The larger size allows you to really soak up all of the wonderful flavors in the scampi sauce. Also, don’t be afraid to add a bit more red pepper flakes if you like a bit more spice.

Lobster Rolls

When you want to impress that special someone or just have a special treat for the family, lobster rolls are a delicious and impressive option.

The lobster meat, which is the star of this dish, is tossed in a delicious blend of mayonnaise and lemon juice.

This gives the lobster a creamy, tangy flavor that is balanced by the crunch of the celery, chives, and scallions.

The brioche buns, which are lightly toasted in salted butter, provide a light and fluffy contrast to the creamy lobster and vegetables.

Tip: To make sure your lobster rolls are extra delicious and flavorful, make sure to season your lobster with black pepper and salt prior to tossing it in the mayonnaise mixture!
