Broiled Lobster Tails

Here is a fancy way to bring a little "surf" to any "turf" dinner!  It's pretty easy too...

You will need:

  • 2 lobster tails (around 8 ounces each)
  • paprika (a few pinches)
  • butter (a couple tbsp's)
  • olive oil (a few tbsp's)
  • kosher salt & pepper

*Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

These little guys were frozen - let them fully thaw before doing anything.  Also, make sure you use quality seafood - I'm sorry, but don't get frozen lobster tails from a box.
I recommend (favorite place and super fresh!)

Use a pair of good scissors to cut the shell as seen above.

It takes a little work to pull the meat away from the shell - use your finger tips.

Once the meat is pulled away, let it back on top of the shell.  This makes it look nice (think Red Lobster commercials - you can have your own "lobster-fest" at home now).  Rub the meat all over with olive oil.

Lay the tails on a cooling rack set on top of a pan.
Sprinkle a light dusting of paprika on each and also salt and pepper.

Bake them at 400 degree for about 15 minutes.  I took these ones out and ran a chunk butter over the meat till it melted.  Set the oven to broil and return for about two minutes.

Throw it on a plate with a veggie and some meat (extra melted butter for dipping too) - there's your fancy Surf 'n Turf meal!  A little chopped parsley adds some more green to the plate!
