Lobster Tacos with Cilantro Slaw

Casual food meets fine dining in this delicious Lobster Tacos with Cilantro Slaw recipe. Tacos are a favorite around these parts and there’s no taco we won’t try! Lobster tacos offer a fun, unique spin on a classic comfort food and will have you wanting to make these a regular in your taco rotation.

For the slaw, we added cilantro and jalapeño to give it new flavor. The lobster meat is dipped in a butter and rice vinegar solution, which really adds a nice layer of flavor without overpowering the lobster. I used Marukan Lite Seasoned Rice Vinegar for this dish.

These are wonderful tacos to serve to guests or for a special date night when you want to keep things casual but kind of fancy, too.
