1. Prepare the lobster

Carefully remove the meat from the lobster shell. Repeat with remaining lobsters and discard the shells.

2. To make the batter

Place flour, breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp chives into a shallow bowl.  In a separate shallow bowl whisk the egg with 1/4 cup water. 

Take 1 piece of lobster meat at a time, dip in flour, shaking off the excess. Dip in egg mixture, then toss in crumb mixture to coat, pressing firmly to secure. Place on a plate. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

3. To make the mayonnaise dressing and slaw

Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic and mustard in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer half the mayonnaise mixture to a small bowl. Stir in remaining chives and set aside. Add cabbage, carrot, apple and onion to remaining mayonnaise mixture. Toss to combine.

4. Fry the lobster

Pour enough oil into a large, deep frying pan to reach 2cm up side of pan. Heat over medium-high heat. Shallow-fry lobster pieces, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden and just cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a tray lined with paper towel to drain.

5. To assemble

Place toasted bun bases on serving plates. Top with coleslaw, then lobster. Drizzle with reserved mayonnaise mixture. Serve immediately with extra chives and lemon wedges.
