How to Broil a Lobster Tail

How to Broil a Lobster Tail created by mums the word

Basic directions on how to broil the tail only. The finished product looks like it does when served in a restaurant. (I cut this from a magazine years ago). Have a look at the photos as a guide.

ingredients

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.

    Do you completely pull out the lobster meat from the shell before cooking it then set it back in the shell or do you just pull it out partly?
