These were fabulous! And SO EASY! The skewer kept them nice and flat and they tasted wonderful. This method will be repeated; no other way to even bother with for cooking lobster tails. Thanks for posting this recipe. I will use this again whenever we have lobster.

Very easy! I haven't cooked lobster very often and was glad to find this method of cooking. Thanks for posting!
