Dominick’s had the frozen lobster tails on sale 1-2 months ago, but since I didn’t have an oven yet, I had to wait until this weekend to make them. This is a very easy recipe, and definitely less traumatic than cooking a live lobster.
- 2 frozen lobster tails (mine were 5 oz)
- 2 Tbsps fresh lemon juice
- 3 Tbsps melted butter
- pinch of salt
- pinch of white pepper
- pinch of paprika
Place tails in individual aluminum foil boats and pour marinade over them. Reserve a bit of marinade to serve with the cooked tails.
Seal the lobster tails in the aluminum foil loosely, making sure the lobster shell doesn’t poke any holes. Arrange in a baking dish.
Bake at 450 F for 20 minutes (longer if the tails are larger). Serve with the remaining marinade (you can warm it up a bit if the butter solidifies) or just butter if you don’t like your tail too lemony. The lobster tails turned out delicious 😉 The cleaning of the tails can be a bit tedious (I made my boyfriend do it since he has more patience ;)), but it is well worth it in the end!
