Easy Lobster Tacos are stuffed with succulent lobster tail meat, fresh lime slaw and a creamy spicy sauce! A fun way to enjoy lobster meat!

We visit relatives in Mexico a few times a year. And when we’re there, we take advantage of the local cuisine! Since our relatives live in a coastal town, that means that we eat a ton of seafood when we visit. It’s pretty common to find lobster on the menu, and to see people pulling up lobster traps full of live lobster while you’re eating! I love to order lobster tacos for lunch, and full fresh lobster for dinner when I can!

Easy Lobster Tacos Recipe

I put together these Easy Lobster Tacos one day while I was missing Mexico! When in Mexico, lobster tacos are usually served in a traditional style, with cilantro, chopped onion and perhaps a fresh salsa. I love lobster tacos served in that style, but wanted to spice it up a little bit!

This Lobster Taco recipe is a little different. The lobster meat is quickly broiled then cut into bite-sized pieces and stuffed into the tortilla shells.

I topped these easy lobster tacos with a fresh lime coleslaw and a simple spicy sour cream sauce, and it is an amazing flavor combination!

These lobster tacos are easy to make! They're topped with a tangy cilantro slaw and a creamy taco homemade sauce.


For the sauce:

  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • juice of 1 lime


  1. Set your oven to broil.
  2. Using a kitchen scissors, cut through the top of the lobster shell lengthwise all the way to the tail. You should cut through the meat as well.
  3. Brush olive oil on the lobster meat and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place on baking tray and broil for 5-10 minutes (I typically plan on 6-7 minutes for the tails that I buy), until the meat is opaque.
  5. Remove the tails from the oven and allow them to cool slightly until they are cool enough to touch. Remove meat from shells and cut into bite sized pieces.
  6. Prepare Cilantro Lime Cole Slaw.
  7. In a small bowl, add sour cream, mayo, taco seasoning and lime juice and whisk until well combined.
  8. Layer tortillas, lobster meat, slaw and sour cream sauce. Great hot or cold!
