Hot & Crispy Lobster Fritters

lobster frittersSometimes, we just need a little fried food in our life. There's nothing wrong with that, right? Frying does, after all, make everything taste better, be it vegetables, or chicken, or ... lobster.

Yes, lobster! If you're gonna fry something during the summer months, what better thing than lobster? It's tasty, it's different, and it's a terribly easy thing to make.

Break out the deep fryer -- or the regular ol' pan and some canola oil, if you fancy -- we're making Lobster Fritters!
