Broiled Buttery Lobster Tails Recipe

- Once thought of as food for the poor, these days eating lobster is seen as the height of culinary luxury. So why not treat yourself by indulging in this seafood delicacy from the comfort of your own home?

For some of us, lobster can feel like an intimidating ingredient to handle in the kitchen. The great news is that cooking with lobster tails takes out a lot of the fuss involved in handling a whole, live lobster, while still allowing you to enjoy the bulk of the delicious lobster meat. 

Recipe developer Jennine Rye shows us just how easy it is to prepare and cook lobster tails that are both decadent and utterly delicious.

Great for a weekend treat, a date night meal, or even the main event at a dinner party; this recipe is sure to impress your guests. We recommend serving these broiled lobster tails with a simple side or two. 

Salad or steamed vegetables add some freshness to the plate, and you'll definitely want something absorbent to soak up all the delicious buttery juices. Whichever sides you choose, we guarantee that these perfectly prepared lobster tails will be unforgettable.

Gather the ingredients for buttery lobster tails

To make these broiled buttery lobster tails, first you will need to gather your ingredients. You will need melted butter, garlic, lemon juice, parsley, Dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, and of course, lobster tails.

Lobster can be quite an expense, so to make the most of this treat you will want to make sure you get your hands on the best quality lobster meat you can find. When buying lobster tails, we recommend buying them frozen rather than defrosted. 

It doesn't take too long to defrost them at home, and, as it is likely that the lobster was frozen immediately after being caught, the resulting meat will be much more fresh and flavorful.

Make the butter mixture

To heighten the decadence of these broiled lobster tails, they will be coated in a delicious, melted butter mixture. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter along with the garlic, the lemon juice, the parsley, Dijon mustard, and cayenne pepper. Then, set this to one side, preheat the broiler, and get ready to prepare the lobster tails.

Prepare the the lobster tails

The most elegant way to prepare lobster tails is to present the meat on top of the lobster shell. To do this, all you need is a sharp pair of kitchen scissors and your hands. 

Using the scissors, cut a straight line down the top of the lobster shell, all the way down to the tail. Holding the tail firmly, gently crack the shell open just enough that you can reach in and access the meat. Take the meat and pull it up and out of the shell, then rest the meat on top of the now empty shell.

Brush the lobster meat with butter

Once all of your lobster tails have been prepared, place them in a baking tray, and, using a silicone pastry brush, liberally brush them with the melted butter mixture. Reserve any unused butter to serve with the finished lobster tails. 

Then, place the lobster tails under the preheated broiler and let them cook for 5-10 minutes. We recommend using a meat thermometer to check the temperature of the meat; it will be ready when the thermometer reads 140 F. Serve the lobster tails hot and fresh, and drizzled with more melted butter.

While we are sure that all of the lobster tails will be eaten straight away, if you do have any leftovers they do not need to be discarded. It is possible to carefully reheat lobster tails in the oven or the microwave.
