Chicken fried lobster?

Mrs and myself recently dined at Binions ranch in LV where she had "Chicken fried Lobster" Personally, I don't care for Lobster, but as one diner described it, it was "Heaven on a plate"

The concept seems simple enough to me, but lobster is kind of pricey to be experimenting with, IMO.

Any thoughts by some of you more seasoned chefs as to how you would approach this dish? I'd love to surprise her with it some evening.

And as always, Thanks for any help/advice you can offer-

It probably would work best with the tails. Treat the tails like pieces of chicken. Coat in seasoned flour and deep or pan fry.

I can't imagine doing that to a poor lobster.

As a loyal true blue "boiled with melted lemon butter on the side" or "boiled & chilled with tarragon/garlic mayo on the side" girl, chicken-fried lobster sounds like blasphemy to me! LOL!!!

Personally, I think Lobster in general is best used as chum-but thats just me. A huge seafaring insect-period.

Judging from the folks raving about it, it must have been good. It appeared to have been pounded flat (I assume the shell was removed) then battered, floured (or vice-versa) and then pan fried.

Doesnt' seem to be any inet info on its preparation, but evidently its one of their most popular dishes!!
