Lobster Tails December 3, 2012

Jamie says: Lobster tails. They’re absolutely delicious but usually a fortune. They were BOGO at Publix this week.  Now, I’ve had ’em (and thoroughly enjoyed them) at restaurants before, but never had I made them.  That changed this weekend. I’m not going to lie, I was slightly intimidated by them. But after talking with the gentleman at the seafood counter, I learned how simple it was…

I couldn’t believe how easy it was! I plopped ’em in some boiling water and had myself an amazing lobster dinner. Fun fact- they were brown at first but almost instantly turned pink in the boiling water!

Simply delectable

I ate both. I told myself, “I’m worth it.” And you are, too!

Lobster Tails

  1. Bring water in a large pot to a boil. Carefully add lobster tails. Cook until lobster flesh is opaque and pearly, about 8 minutes. Carefully use tongs to remove lobster from water and place on a plate.
  2. Scoop buttery spread into a small microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 20 seconds or until melted.
  3. Serve lobster with buttery spread. Enjoy!

Servings: 1-2
