The most amazing thing starts from here. Let us give you the 5-step method to the best lobster dish ever!

  • Step 1: Dry all of the lobster pieces after rinsing them with a paper towel.
  • Step 2: Make a mixture of flour and cornstarch in a shallow bowl, lightly dredge the lobster pieces to expose the meat to seal in the juices.
  • Step 3: Some people will deep fry the lobster in a large wok to quickly seal in the juices which only takes 20 seconds or so. By the way, for home cooking, we can just use a smaller pot and fry it in batches, which is less complicated and more suitable for a homemade one. This method makes the lobster cooked faster and enhances the lobster flavor. In addition, it also produces a rich color while preventing the tender meat from overcooking.
  • Step 4: Heat 2 cups of oil to about 350 to 400 degrees F, and drop the lobster into it, a couple of pieces at a time for about 10 seconds. Place them onto a sheet pan and watch them turn bright red almost instantly.
  • Step 5: Reaching to the final steps, starting with a clean wok over high heat with 2 tablespoons of oil into the wok, together with the ginger. Fry the ginger for about 30 seconds, until it’s fragrant. Then add the white portions of the scallions and the lobster. then stir fry on for 20 seconds, keeping the heat cranked up as high as it’ll go.
  • Step 6: Pour the wine around the perimeter of the wok and immediately cover it. Leave it for 2 minutes till you cover the wok and add the soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, white pepper, and the rest of the scallions. Stir fry for another minute. You can add a couple of tablespoons of water if the wok is too dry.
