How to Cook Maine Lobster Tails

How to Cook Maine Lobster Tails
Step 1
Cut the tail down the hard shell of the back, cutting the shell only, not the flesh. Leave the fan tail intact.
Step 2
Boil the tails in salty water. As a rough guide, allow about a minute per ounce plus about two more minutes.
Step 3
Steam the lobster tails over water for 5-7 minutes, depending on their size if you prefer that to boiling. You can cook over white wine, and use the steaming liquid to make a sauce, after you've cooked the tails, by reducing the liquid, adding chopped herbs and mixing in a little cream.
Step 4
Garlic butter to dip your tails in.
Add a stick of real butter to a saucepan. Mince very finely a few cloves of garlic and add to the saucepan to make a garlic butter to dip your lobster tails in.
Step 5

Garnish with lemon slices and serve.

Tips & Warnings
*Defrost the lobster tails in either the refrigerator or the microwave.
*Be VERY careful where you buy your lobster to ensure it is very fresh.
*The tails should not smell fishy.
