The best Lobster is always fresh, but it can be expensive. To save a few holiday dollars, you can purchase frozen lobster tails. The essential solution to frozen, though, is allowing them to thaw completely before cooking.

Ingredients

  • 4-8 ounce lobster tails (appropriately thawed if frozen)
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • freshly chopped parsley, and chives. 
  • 4 lemon wedges

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Using kitchen shears, horizontally cut the shell from top to bottom.
  3. With your fingers, loosen meat carefully from the shell, then pull meat up through the slit, so it sits outside the shell.
  4. Arrange all the lobster tails side-by-side on a baking sheet meat side up.
  5. Add one tablespoon of butter to the top of each lobster steak.
  6. Place the lobster tails inside the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the meat turns white, feels firm, and no longer has a translucent color.
  7. Once fully cooked, pull lobster tails from the oven, drizzle the tops with melted butter, then add the parsley and chives. Serve with lemon wedges.

I am a 48-year-old woman with nothing more than a high school diploma and two years of college under my belt. During my short college experience, I took a creative writing class and received a D+ from my professor. I never considered myself a writer, nor had I given it much thought until I experienced a personal hardship. I escaped the pain by burying myself into something creative instead of crying all day.

I told myself, ‘Just get to 60,000 words and then you can say you’ve written a book.’ Initially, I began writing as therapy but soon discovered; I loved it. An alternate universe exists? Inside MY head? Why had I not seen this before?

My husband, daughter, and sister advised me that I should create a blog, so that’s what I did. I believe the key to life is trusting your heart and following your dreams, no matter how big or small they are. No one knows what treasures lie deep within yourself unless you’re willing to travel into unknown territory to uncover those hidden gems. For me, that is the case. I have a true passion for writing. I am grateful for this opportunity to share my thoughts with others. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I loved writing them.

I do have a book series that will come out soon. I will post a few chapters before it is published so my readers can have the first look.
