Crab-Stuffed Lobster Tail Recipe
Lobster tails topped with crab dressing make an exquisite but surprisingly simple meal for two. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
Grilled lobster tails stuffed with celery, green onion, and crabmeat seasoned with cayenne pepper and dry mustard. Delicious served with warm garlic lemon butter.
This recipe was so easy delicious! I subbed some whole wheat crackers for the buttery ones (always changing up ingredients where I can to make things a little healthier). My grocery store also ran out of lump crab meat and I used a high quality canned crab meat that I was nervous would make it "fishy" and it was awesome instead of spending $20 I spent $5 and it was really good. Making this for a upcoming dinner party.
I made this for my husband's birthday and it certainly was a "wow!" Thanks for the recipe!
Don't wait for your next Maine vacation to indulge in lobster tails! You can enjoy meaty lobster tails at home--cooked in your air fryer--with a lemon-garlic butter sauce.
I made 5 (5oz) tails, and increased everything accordingly. Even though I piled the stuffing high, we had about a cup left over. Totally fine by me! It's amazing heaped on bread and toasted, which was the next day's indulgent breakfast. Possibly beacuse of how much stuffing I used, it took about 15 minutes for the tails to completely reach 145 degrees. By this time the crab was a little crusty on top, and we loved it. It wasn't burnt at all - just gave a nice counterpoint to the tender tail meat. If you have never used this technique to lay the tail meat on top, don't be scared off by it. It isn't terribly difficult. The meat will stick a little to the shell on top. I find it easiest to loosen the meat from the bottom first and then wiggle my finger slowly around until it's free. Any meat still clinging to the shell is easy to get after cooking.
This was delicious! Very easy to make. I too baked the tail a little before laying the crab mixture on top. Will definitely make this again!
