Lobster Tail anyone!!! Basic How To's

Lobster How to Prepare!

I was going through some of my pictures and thought this illustration might be of use to those who like lobster tail and hesitate to prepare it because you may think it is difficult..

Hubby and I love it and we don't indulge very often but when we both crave some we buy some good quality lobster at our local market or I have bought it at Costco or Sam's.  Here is how I do it and it is tender and buttery with no fishy taste or grisly bits which I have come across at a few restaurants where they only broil their lobster tails. Hope you find this helpful!

Delicious and cooked perfectly!

Place lobster tail in a large pot and cover lobster with cold water..Add 1 tsp. red pepper flakes and 1 tablespoon vinegar

Bring to a boil and turn heat down to a low boil and simmer for approximately 15 minutes.  Note:  Lobster tail will change color from dark to reddish color

Remove with tongs from water..Rinse off in cool water.  Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

 Place tail on sturdy surface (cutting board) and press firmly down with a large serrated knife to crack shell

You will now have two pieces

Using a pastry brush , brush tail with melted butter, sprinkle with paprika and broil until bubbly (just a few minutes)
