HOW TO COOK LOBSTER TAIL
Once you have it butterflied, there are several options for how to cook lobster tail:
- Broiled lobster – This method is in the oven under the high heat of the broiler. My easy lobster tail recipe is broiled!
- Baked lobster – Similar to the broil method, but under normal heat. I find that the high heat of broiling gets a more tender inside than regular baking.
As you can probably guess, I think the best lobster recipe is broiled! The cook time is quick (just 10 minutes or less!) and it’s super flavorful from the butter.
Here’s how to broil lobster tails with our Signature Butter Sauce:
- Brush lobster tails with butter. It’s important to coat all the lobster meat so that it stays nice and juicy – this is the best way to cook lobster tails!
- Broil lobster tails. Broil lobster until the meat is opaque and slightly browned, about 1 minute per ounce of individual tail.
