Let me say that again, CRISPY – LOBSTER – WRAPS. Does that not sound yum to you? One of my all-time favourite dishes that will certainly put on a smile on your guests’ faces.
I think these are best for a summers lunch as an alfresco lunch with some other salads to serve and maybe a cheeky glass of Prosecco or two.
The hard part of this dish is preparing and cooking the lobsters, once you’ve done that and taken them out of the shells, the cooking and wrapping is fun. Eating them is even more fun.
Here’s the assemble of the crispy lobster wraps above. Try to make sure you griddle your tortillas at the same time as frying the lobster tempura to wrap together and serve hot.
I love making these for guests at work as they are a favourite. And that’s my aim with serving food, to make people happy and ensure they enjoy their experience.
You can buy pre-cooked lobster from a supermarket to save you time and hassle. My cooking motto though is, ‘Fresh is Best’, so always make fresh as you’ll achieve superior quality and taste. Or you can even replace the lobster with king prawns, that will work really well too.
The chilli mayonnaise is easy to make, I just mix mayonnaise with the Lee Kum Kee chilli garlic sauce and lime juice, super simple and tasty.
I have to admit, they are not the healthiest of options yet for a special treat and occasion, they are so worth it. Happy cooking #PopUpChef
