How to Cook Lobster Tail
Lobster / Entree
There are several super simple ways to cook restaurant-quality lobster tail at home.
2 4-ounce lobster tails
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ teaspoon finely minced garlic
Kosher salt to taste
Preheat the broiler, and place the rack about 6 inches away from the heat source. Using kitchen scissors, cut the top of the shell down the middle and spread open the shell a bit to expose the meat
In a small bowl melt the butter with the garlic and salt. Brush the tops of the lobster tails with the butter mixture. Broil for about 6 minutes until the meat is firm and opaque (white) and an instant read thermometer registers 140°F in the center of the tail.
