Learning how to cook lobster tails can be a little intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. All it takes is a little effort, a quality lobster tail, and the right recipe. Here is the perfect recipe for the perfect broiled lobster tail:
You will need the following ingredients:
- 2 whole lobster tails
- 1/2 cup of butter (melted)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
- salt (to taste)
- ground white pepper (to taste)
- and one lemon wedged for garnishing
After you have gathered all your tasty ingredients, preheat the broiler for 10 minutes. Then, place lobster tails on a baking sheet.
Carefully cut the lobster shells lengthwise, to expose the succulent meat. Season the lobster meat with equal amounts if butter, paprika, salt, and white pepper. Last, but not least, broil lobster tails about 5-10 minutes, or until they are lightly browned on the top. The lobster meat should be nontranslucent, when fully cooked. Garnish with precut lemon wedges for a perfect finale!
