This Lobster Tail Recipe is easy and delicious and quickly made in your Air Fryer. It’s also coated with a delicious garlic buttery sauce and air fried to perfection.
Then I place my lobster tails in my Air Fryer and spread some garlic butter over the lobster. Then I close my air fryer and cook for 4 minutes at 380 degrees Fahrenheit. After 4 minutes, I open the air fryer basket and spread some more butter on top, and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
The size of your lobster tails will determine how long you need to cook them. At a minimum, they will need 6 minutes if they are on the smaller side, about 2 ounces. The ones pictured here took me the full 8 minutes to be done and were about 4 ounces each.
