Preparing a Lobster Tail

Preparing a lobster tail can seem overwhelming but we know you can do it! Use these simple step by step instructions and images below and you'll be an expert in no time.

  1. Using a clean pair of scissors or kitchen shears, cut along the middle of the top of the shell towards the fins of the tail, making sure to cut in a straight line. Do not cut through the end of the tail.
  2. Using a spoon, separate the meat from the two sides of the shell, then lift the meat up and out from inside the shell.
  3. Press the two sides of the shell together, then lay the meat over the seam where the two shells meet.
  4. Brush lobster meat with garlic butter.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven 450 degrees F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 for 15 seconds.
