  1. Make the lobster: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. While whisking constantly, add the egg, beer, and Cholula® Hot Sauce and continue whisking until smooth.
  2. Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 350°F (180°C). Set a wire rack over a baking sheet.
  3. Working in batches of a few pieces at a time, dip the lobster in the batter until thoroughly coated, then add to the hot oil. Fry, turning occasionally, for 4 minutes, or until the batter is deep golden brown and the lobster is cooked through. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the lobster to the wire rack to drain.
  4. Make the slaw: In a medium bowl, toss together the green and red cabbage, radishes, red onion, mayonnaise, lime juice, and salt until well combined. Season with more salt to taste.
  5. Assemble the tacos: Place a few slices of avocado on a warm tortilla, then top with 3–4 pieces of fried lobster and about ¼ cup of slaw. Drizzle with Cholula® Hot Sauce and garnish with cilantro.
  6. Enjoy!
