Stir-Fried Lobster

Peel and slice a 2 inch piece of fresh ginger. Slice 2 green onions into 1.5 inch pieces. Cut a medium sized onion into quarters. Put these items aside for now.

Cut edible parts of lobster into pieces.
Put lobster pieces into a mixing bowl and add:

1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 tbsp. flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

Mix well.

Fry lobster in a large wok containing 2 cups of vegetable oil until lobster shells are orange/red in color and the flesh is white.

Lift pieces of lobster out using a wok strainer (we did not use a wok strainer, but it would have been much easier if we did) and place onto a plate. Put the oil in a heatproof container.
Place 2 tbsp. of the oil back into the wok, and add the green onion, ginger and onion. Stir fry for a couple minutes. Place lobster back into the wok and add:

(Pre-mixing the following ingredients in a bowl and adding them all at once is a good idea)

1 tbsp. soy sauce

1 tbsp. cornstarch,

1 tsp. sugar

1/2 cup water

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp. oyster sauce (replace with soy sauce if you don't have oyster sauce)

Mix well and stir fry for a few minutes.

Serve on a plate on its own, with rice or another side dish of choice.
