Bacon Wrapped Lobster Chunks – Chirstmas Special

One of the greatest things about being on a ketogenic diet is the creativity it brings out in you. We’re eating more colorful and delicious meals now than we ever have! And to think… there was a time we settled for a bowl of pasta for dinner. Not anymore! We try to make something new every day, and with food, that’s easy. There are millions of things you can have for dinner that are nutritious, taste amazing and are deceptively simple to make. Tonight for dinner, we’re mixing it up and making something that would actually be considered an appetizer- bacon wrapped lobster chunks with homemade garlic aioli!

Bored of eating meat on the ketogenic diet? Try these Bacon Wrapped Lobster Chunks for a special treat and impress your guests…They will never know it’s keto!


  • 1 lb lobster tail
  • 9-10 strips of bacon
  • 4 stalks green onion (cut into 2 inch segments)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter (plus more for dipping)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Dipping Sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • ½ cup olive oil


  1. Remove the lobster meat from the tail shell and fry on an oiled pan on medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side.
  2. Midway through the frying, put 2 tablespoons of butter into the pan and let them melt. Let the lobster bathe in the butter on all sides, sprinkle with salt and spices.
  3. After frying, take the lobster off the heat and cut into 1 – 1½ inch chunks. It’s helpful to cut along with the natural grooves in the tail.
  4. Take your bacon and cut each strip in half (ending up with 2 strips half as long).
  5. Place a piece of lobster and 1-2 green onion pieces onto one end of a strip of bacon and start rolling towards the other end. Secure with a toothpick.
  6. Arrange all the pieces on a greased baking sheet with enough room for the air to circulate. The bacon wrapped chunks should not be touching each other.
  7. Place it in your oven set to broil on the second highest level. Broil for 8-10 minutes, turning each one over in the middle. Keep an eye on that bacon!

Garlic Aioli Dip

  1. While your main dish is is broiling, throw in 2 cloves of garlic (raw or roasted), 1 egg, 1 tablespoon each of lemon juice and chopped parsley, and some salt and pepper into a food processor.
  2. Blend until the egg has lightened in color and the garlic is no longer chunky.
  3. While the food processor is blending, very slowly pour in ½ cup of olive oil. It should take 3 minutes to pour the olive oil in, just to ensure the consistency comes out perfect.
  4. When the bacon is crispy on all sides, take the baking sheet out and arrange the lobster chunks on a serving platter. Squeeze some lemon onto all the pieces and serve with garlic aioli and melted butter. Tip: melt the butter with salt and paprika to make a sweet and smokey dip!
