2 lobster tails
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
Lemon wedges, for serving
Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
**Prep the Lobster Tails:**Thaw the lobster tails if they’re frozen. Using kitchen shears, carefully cut along the top shell of each lobster tail, stopping at the base of the tail. Gently pull the shell apart to expose the meat while keeping it attached at the base. Lift the meat through the cut shell, allowing it to rest on top.
**Season the Lobster Tails:**Brush the lobster meat with the melted butter, making sure to coat it well.
In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the buttered lobster meat.
**Preheat the Air Fryer:**Preheat your air fryer to 380°F (193°C).
**Air Frying:**Place the seasoned lobster tails in the air fryer basket, ensuring they’re not touching.
Cook the lobster tails in the air fryer for about 6-8 minutes or until the meat is opaque and cooked through. Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the lobster tails and the specific air fryer model.
**Serve:**Carefully remove the lobster tails from the air fryer and transfer them to serving plates.
Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
Enjoy your delicious air fryer lobster tail!
Please note that cooking times may vary depending on your specific air fryer model and the size of the lobster tails. Always ensure that the lobster tails are cooked thoroughly and reach a safe internal temperature.
Feel free to adjust the seasoning and cooking time to your preference. Enjoy your meal!
