Seafood is famous for being refined and is often served at weddings and other lavish occasions. But, did you realize that you can stay home even on a busy weeknight? Why wait for a special occasion to emerge when you can dig into one of the home-cooked lobster tails.
4 lobster tails 5 to 6 oz each
1 Tbsp fresh parsley very finely ; chopped plus more for garnish
2 garlic cloves pressed
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 Tbsp unsalted butter ; divided
Use kitchen scissors to cut through the top shell of the lobster tail, stopping at the base of the tail and snipping through the top portion of the meat as you go.
Flip the tail over to the back see-through side and crack the ribs in the center. This will help open the shell.
Open the shell carefully using thumbs and fingers and loosen meat from the shell (remove vein if present). Lift the meat from the shell, keeping it attached at the base. Press the shell together and set the lobster meat over the top. Most of the lobster meat should be sitting on top of the shell.
In a small bowl, stir together marinade ingredients: 1 Tbsp parsley, 2 garlic cloves, 1 tsp dijon, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice.
Place rack in center of oven so the meaty tops of your lobster tails will be at least 6 inches from the top heating element. Preheat oven to broil on high heat.
Broil lobster tails on high heat 10-11 min (or according to the lobster tail size – see chart). When done, lobster meat should be opaque and white in the center and register 145°F on an instant read thermometer. Transfer to serving platter and garnish with parsley if desired.
To make the Garlic Lemon Butter: drain drippings from the roasting pan into a small saucepan and combine with remaining 2 Tbsp butter, bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Pour over lobster tails or divide into ramekins and use as dipping sauce.
