If you want to add swag to your holiday menu, really impress those guests, completely spoil your family, or maybe just yourself, why not implement lobster into your seasonal cooking plans.
Here is a wonderful, and yes, super simple lobster recipe that will transform the ordinary into a decadent and sophisticated dish.
How to Cook Lobster Tails
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.
- 4-8 ounce lobster tails (appropriately thawed if frozen)
- 4 tbsp butter
- freshly chopped parsley, and chives.
- 4 lemon wedges
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Using kitchen shears, horizontally cut the shell from top to bottom.
- With your fingers, loosen meat carefully from the shell, then pull meat up through the slit, so it sits outside the shell.
- Arrange all the lobster tails side-by-side on a baking sheet meat side up.
- Add one tablespoon of butter to the top of each lobster steak.
- 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.
- 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.
