  • 4 lobster tails

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • Cooking spray

  • Extra sauce for dipping


1. Prepare the Lobster Tails:

Start by preparing the lobster tails. Using kitchen shears, carefully cut along the top of each lobster tail shell, stopping at the base of the tail. Gently lift the shell to expose the meat, then place the lobster tails on a cutting board or plate.

2. Make the Honey Sriracha Glaze:

In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, Sriracha sauce, and melted butter until well combined. This flavorful glaze will add a sweet and spicy kick to the lobster tails, enhancing their natural flavor and caramelizing beautifully during the air frying process.

3. Brush the Lobster Tails:

Using a pastry brush or spoon, generously brush the honey Sriracha glaze over the exposed meat of each lobster tail. Make sure to coat the meat evenly, ensuring that it's fully covered in the flavorful glaze.

4. Preheat Your Air Fryer:

Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) while you prepare the lobster tails. This will ensure that it's hot and ready to cook the lobster tails to perfection.

5. Air Fry the Lobster Tails:

Lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place the prepared lobster tails in the basket, making sure they are not overlapping. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the lobster tails in batches.

6. Cook Until Caramelized:

Carefully place the basket in the preheated air fryer and cook the lobster tails for 8-10 minutes, or until the meat is opaque and cooked through, and the shell is caramelized. Keep an eye on the lobster tails as they cook to prevent them from overcooking.

7. Serve with Extra Sauce:

Once the lobster tails are cooked to perfection, transfer them to a serving platter. Serve them hot, accompanied by extra honey Sriracha sauce on the side for dipping. The extra sauce adds an additional layer of flavor and spice to the dish, allowing you to customize the heat level to your liking.

8. Enjoy:

Serve the Honey Sriracha Air Fried Lobster Tails immediately, while they are still hot and fresh from the air fryer. These flavorful lobster tails are perfect for serving as an appetizer or main course at your next dinner party or special occasion.

Tips for Success for the Perfect Honey Sriracha Air Fried Lobster Tails:

  • Choose high-quality lobster tails for the best results. Look for tails that are firm, with a bright red color and no strong odor.

  • Adjust the amount of Sriracha sauce in the glaze according to your spice preference. Add more for an extra kick or less for a milder flavor.

  • For an extra caramelized finish, you can broil the lobster tails in the oven for a minute or two after air frying.

  • Serve the lobster tails with additional lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the top, if desired.

  • Garnish the lobster tails with chopped fresh parsley or green onions for a pop of color and freshness.

With these tips in mind, you're ready to create a restaurant-quality Honey Sriracha Air Fried Lobster Tails dish that's sure to impress. Enjoy the sweet and spicy flavors of the honey Sriracha glaze paired with tender, succulent lobster tails for a truly unforgettable dining experience.
