DIRECTIONS

  • Line a broiler pan with foil pressing it into the grooves of the pan.
  • Cut a line down the center of the top of the shell (not the underside of shell), stopping just before the tail fins.
  • Pull shell apart leaving it intact, and gently pull lobster meat out, cradling it on top of the now opened shell.
  • Using a sharp knife, make a small slit down the top of the meat and spread it by running your finger through the lobster meat.
  • Fill crevice with butter, then sprinkle with garlic salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Broil 3-4 inches from heat for approximately 1 minute per ounce.
  • (ie: a 4 oz tail would take about 4 minutes).
  • Watch carefully.
