Easy Broiled Lobster Tails

I had a craving out of this world for buttery broiled lobster for quite some time now. Doubly intensified by working in a restaurant that features lobster on its menu. Watching it float pass me en route to a table was painful as my it held my attention, it’s aroma captivated my nostrils and the combination immediately encouraged salivation. They say covet the best gifts, I’m telling ya!!! Eating lobster seemed like the best gift then and I was lusting after that like a fat kid in a chocolate factory.

I decided to end the torture and satisfy this craving. I went out and got some whole lobsters. Having only prepared them maybe twice, eyons ago at culinary school, I consulted YouTube for a refresher and found a really good vid on How to Cut Them that made it so simple and easy.

Ideally, the fresher the lobster, the better! Mine were frozen while they were still alive but fresh lobster is best.


• 2 Lobster Tails, cleaned

• 1/2 cup of butter

• pinch of salt for each tail

• sprinkle of paprika

• 1 tsp of garlic powder

• finely chopped chives and thyme

• dash of cayenne pepper

Preheat your broiler. Place your lobster tails on a baking tray. The key to unlocking all the lobster has to offer is the use of butter.

Brush your tails with a little melted butter then apply all of your dry ingredients. Personally, I prefer the natural taste of the lobster so I use these seasonings moderately. The cayenne is optional but I love the way it packs a punch and it is great for color.

Top the tails with your chopped herbs and pack them with the remainder of butter.

Pop them in the oven for about 7-10mins until they are lightly browned.

Voila …..
