Easy Buttery Broiled Lobster Tails

Posted by

Ya’ll might all think I’m a carnivore that only eats meat.  I will admit – I freakin’ love a nice piece of medium rare rib eye or prime rib – HOLY YUM.  However, BOY do I love LOBSTER!  It is all the way up there as one of my favorite meals!  So, what can beat a surf and turf?  I. CAN’T. EVEN.

Lots of people are intimidated with making lobster.  It sounds so fancy!  However, it’s actually super easy to make!  Check out this easy peasy buttery broiled lobster tails recipe below!

Ingredients

  • 4 lobster tails
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper, as desired  
  • 1 lemon, optional

Directions 

First off, preheat the broiler.  Then with a sharp knife, carefully cut bottom side of lobster shells lengthwise.  If you care for presentation, you could also cut the top side of the lobster shells, however, this is more difficult so if you choose to do it this way, you can use a pair of kitchen shears instead.  Pull apart shells slightly, and with a basting brush, brush the melted butter all over the lobster flesh. 

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place lobster tails on a baking sheet.  Broil lobster tails until lobster meat is opaque.  This takes about 5-10 minutes.

Optionally, serve with lemon wedges and melted butter!
