Lion's Den Lobster Fritters (Gluten Free)

"Lobster, melted garlic butter, and shredded unsweetened coconut are this recipe's tasty ingredients. Our home in the Bahamas is called the Lion's Den and that is where this recipe was born. Hubby & I live on a small out-island in the Bahamas and it can be difficult to get gluten free items unless I bring them from the States. I have learned to make the things that I crave out of the ingredients I have on hand. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces or ketchup."

How to Make Fried Pickles

These tasty fried appetizers are a Southern favorite—and so easy to make!


  • Cook's note:
  • This makes a big batch. Lobster meat can be replaced with any seafood successfully. I mix together Hellman's Mayo, Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce, and Heinz Ketchup to taste to serve alongside. My hubby is the pickiest eater I know, and he said these were amazing. I don't disagree.

I just made these firtters because I had a leftover lobster tail, 4 claws and body"meat". I must say, they are quite tasty and finding this lovely gluten-free recipe was a bonus for me! I did use the extra lobster meat mentioned above because I didn't want the fritters to be too "bready". I followed the recipe ingredients very closely other than not adding salt; next time I'm going to add finely chopped sweet red pepper. I crushed the GF crackers in my small food processor so that they were very fine. I used my deep iron frying pan and didn't need a quart of oil - just poured in about 1 inch. Just tasted one so I could write this review - delish! Even without sauce, although I'll whip up something to serve it with later. I plan on freezing some as this recipe made about 34 nice sized fritters. Thanks for a great GF gourmet fritter!

I made these the other night just to see if they would be good for company coming at Christmas time . They are fantastic! My husband loved them too. I used a package of immitation crab because that is what I had on hand. It was better then going out to eat ,thanks for the great recipe!


These were sooo good! I used imitation crab instead of the lobster. I can only imagine what they would taste like with lobster. Wonderful. Thank you so much for the gluten free recipe.
