Though we often enjoy it at high-end seafood restaurants or in the form of surf and turf, I’m on a mission to make lobster tails a more casual, at-home offering. Cooking the Perfect Lobster Tails At Home is not difficult, nor should it be intimidating – and I’m so excited to share my tips with y’all today. The best part? Lobster tails often go on sale at your local seafood counter; watch for the sales + freeze them!

How To Butterfly A Lobster Tail

In this recipe, I butterfly the lobster tails — which is a very easy process. Here’s how:

  1. Using kitchen shears, cut down the top of the lobster shell. The lobster should be shell-side up.
  2. Gently pull apart each half of the shell.
  3. Slide your finger under the bottom of the lobster meat; push upwards, allowing the lobster meat to rest on top of the lobster shell.

Ingredients

  • 4 Lobster Tails large

For The Marinade

  • 3/4 stick Unsalted Butter melted
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice freshly-squeezed

Instructions

Butterfly the Lobster Tails

  • Using kitchen shears, cut down the top of the lobster shell. The lobster should be shell-side up. Gently pull apart each half of the shell. Slide your finger under the bottom of the lobster meat; push upwards, allowing the lobster meat to rest on top of the lobster shell.

Preparing the Broiled Lobster Tail

  • Preheat oven to a High Broil.
  • Mix together all marinade ingredients. Place lobster tails on a baking sheet. Liberally brush the marinade on top of the lobster tails.
  • Broil for roughly 1 minute per ounce of lobster. For example, if your lobster is 8 oz, you'd broil for 8 minutes.
  • Serve with melted butter and enjoy!
