Many of us have only enjoyed a lobster tail dinner at a restaurant, whether a high-end chain, or a full-on seafood restaurant, or maybe a steakhouse (possibly even surf and turf, on a very special occasion?). What might be surprising is how easy it is to cook it at home. Can you melt butter and turn on the broiler? Then you can make a lobster tail.

And while I don’t understand people who think that eating a whole lobster is too much work (have you heard people say that? Nuts, I say), I know they are out there. There is also the fact that eating a whole lobster is rarely a delicate or clean endeavor, and in my case I feel like I have to know the person sitting across from me is quite fond of me, because watching me dismantle a lobster is not pretty. No morsel stays in the shell, and those little wipes aren’t what I need at the end of the meal. Think more along the lines of a Silkwood shower.

What To Prepare Before Baking Lobster Tails?

The Essential Ingredients

As you may have already known, every “masterpiece” needs to start with the core ingredients first. You should make sure that you prepare the following ingredients and lobster spices well, so that your dishes come out deliciously and beautifully.

  • 8 oz of lobster tails (usually equivalent to 2 lobster tails).
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper.
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika.
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh chopped parsley.
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
  • 2 wedges of lemon.
  • Cooked broccoli.

Remember to choose the main ingredient in the lobster season because the lobsters are of high quality and the freshest meat is at this point.

Note: The above amount of those ingredients is used for 2 servings. You can flexibly adjust it so as to meet the needs of yours.

How to cut a lobster tail

broiled lobster tails

Just by looking at lobster tails you probably would think to yourself. How in the heck I’m supposed to get into that thing? Lobster tails shells are so hard u would even compare it to somewhat of a turtle shell. Anywho, let me get to the point. The easiest way to cut a lobster tail is to simply get a scissors, hold the lobster tail firmly in your hand with the tail facing away from you then cut in the middle underneath the shell. Once you have done that take a butter knife and separate the meat from the shell. Thoroughly wash afterwards. Pull meat out shell and place a lemon underneath meat in shell. That’s it!

Lobster tails are one of the easiest things you can cook!! You just need to take your lobster tails and season the meat with all the ingredients you like. I placed melted butter, parsley, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small cup. Once you have done that use a pastry brush to apply the mixture onto the meat in the lobster tail. Then place in the oven for 15 minutes. There you have it!

P.S. I included step-by-step photo instructions on how to prepare and butterfly lobster tails so you can make the most impressive posh-looking lobster tails like a boss :).

Ingredients for Lobster Tails Recipe:

4 lobster tails (5 to 6 oz each)
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, very finely chopped, plus more for garnish
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided

How to Prepare/Butterfly Lobster Tails:

1. Use kitchen scissors to cut through the top shell of the lobster tail, stopping at the base of the tail and snipping through the top portion of the meat as you go.

2. Flip the tail over to the back sea-through side of the tail and crack the ribs in the center. This will help open the shell.

3. Open the shell using your thumbs and fingers and loosen the meat from the shell (remove vein if present). Work carefully – shells can be sharp! Lift the meat from the shell, keeping it attached at the base. Press the shell together and set the lobster meat over the top. The bulk of the lobster meat should be sitting over the top of the shell.

How to Make Broiled Lobster Tails:

1. Place rack in center of oven so when you bake, the meaty tops of your lobster tails will be at least 6 inches from the top heating elements. Preheat oven to broil.

2. In a small bowl, add the marinade ingredients: 1 Tbsp parsley, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 1 tsp dijon, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice. Stir to combine.

3. Broil lobster tails 10-11 minutes (or according to the lobster tail size – see chart below). When done, lobster meat should be opaque and white in the center and register 145˚F on an instant read thermometer. Transfer lobster tails to a serving platter and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

4. To make the Garlic Lemon Butter: drain drippings from the roasting pan into a small saucepan and combine with remaining 2 Tbsp butter, bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Pour over lobster tails or divide into small ramekins and use as dipping sauce.

Broiling Times for Lobster Tails:

Smaller (3 to 4 oz) lobsters 6 to 8 minutes
Medium (5 to 6 oz) lobsters 10-11 minutes
Larger (7 to 9 oz) lobsters 12-15 minutes (with rack in middle of oven)
Broil lobster meat until opaque and white in the center, or 145˚F.

Lobster Tails – What Are They?

As mentioned, lobsters are crustaceans. They are one of the most commercially harvested marine animals helping generate a multi-billion-dollar industry today. Approximately 200,000 tons of lobster are caught per year around the globe, with the American and European lobster among the most common species.

These crustaceans live on the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean. They have a segmented body and rigid covering, as well as five pairs of legs. Typically, one or two pairs of legs are converted into pincers.

Lobster tails are undoubtedly one of the best parts of the crustacean. The tails provide the best attributes of the lobster, such as firmer meat texture and a much more flavorful taste.

I know I just said I wouldn’t cook lobster tails and try to reheat them. I stand behind that. BUT, if you cook the lobster, enjoy it and still have some left over, you do have a couple options for reheating the lobster meat.

  1. Reheat the lobster in butter – Use the pot-in-pot (PIP) method for this option. Place your lobster meat in an oven-safe dish that will fit in the Foodi. Add some melted butter to the bottom of the dish and cover with foil.Select BAKE/ROAST function and cook at 350º Fahrenheit until tails are heated through. Baste with melted butter to ensure moist lobster meat.
  2. Steam the lobster – Add a cup of water to the Foodi pot. Place the lobster meat in the cook and crisp basket. Select STEAM function and steam for 5 minutes or until tails are heated through.
