Yes, I know.
These are purely indulgent.
But I promise, every last bite is worth it. All the way down to the final crumb.
If I am being completely honest here, you do not even need any of the other stuff that I am showing you to go with these.
I mean, Lobster Beignets are obviously the star of the show.
We’re talking buttery fired lobster with blue cheese. Oh my gosh, it does not get better. Really it doesn’t.
You don’t even know.
I realize that these are not pretty or cute in anyway and in fact they actually look like itty, bitty, mini fried chickens.
Fried chickens they are not. And trust me, they are so much better.
But, I do not care that they are ugly and funny looking and even a little bigger than I was hopping. They are an amazing thing.
Here’s the deal, up until a month ago I would have NEVER thought to fry lobster.
Then I went down south. Where everything is fried and fish and seafood are everywhere.
They especially seem to do a lot crab down south, and the inspiration behind these was actually blue crab beignets, but over here (or maybe I should say up here – since we are almost ALWAYS up) we really like lobster. Even my seafood hating mom likes it.
Of course it has to be covered in butter, but you have to understand something about my mom. She is a plain bread and butter, pasta and butter, rice and butter kind of girl. She could live off of carbs and butter…..
Oh and yes, she’d be happy.
So I saw some lobster tails on sale and honestly jumped out of my skin.
It was like a sign. A sign I needed to make Lobster Beignets. Try them…
life will never be the same again.
Oh so good. I really, really like these.
