For the Lobster Tails:
Step 1: Get Your Risotto Going
First, heat your chicken broth in a large saucepot until it's hot and ready.Melt the butter in a large sauté pan preheated over medium heat.Stir in your finely diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion turns translucent but not brown—around 3 to 4 minutes.Introduce the Arborio rice to the pan. Season it with sea salt and let the grains bask in the buttery goodness for a few minutes.
Step 2: Risotto, Meet Wine
Pour in the white wine and let it simmer until the rice soaks up the liquid like a sponge.
Step 3: Broth Time
Slowly add your hot chicken broth, a 1/2 cup at a time, all while whisking continuously.Give it about 25 to 30 minutes over medium heat until the rice is al dente.Once you've reached rice perfection, fold in the grated Parmesan and let it melt into the mixture. Cover and keep warm.
Step 4: Lobster Tail Magic
Bring a pot of sea-salted water to a rolling boil.Plunge your thawed, never frozen, lobster tails into the boiling ocean of flavor for about 6 minutes.Transfer the lobster tails to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
Step 5: Tail Prep
Once the tails are cool to the touch, use kitchen shears to make a lengthwise cut along the underside of the shell.Peel away the shell to reveal the succulent lobster meat.
Step 6: Butter Poaching
Melt your high-quality butter in a small saucepan.Add a dash of sea salt, smoked paprika, ground black pepper, and freshly chopped parsley.Poach the lobster tails in this heavenly butter for about 1 to 1.5 minutes, rotating frequently.
Step 7: Serve It Up!
Lay your poached lobster tails on a bed of the creamy risotto. Drizzle some of that infused butter over the top and add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
