Basic Directions for Cooking
If possible, thaw lobster tails before cooking - they will be more tender than
those cooked frozen. Place the shears between the meat and the
shell on the back of the tail. Cut the
shell down the center. DO NOT cut fan
tail, leave it intact. Gently lift the raw
tail meat out through the split shell, leaving it attached at the tail. Place lobster tails in pan with a little
water to prevent drying.
Boiling Lobster Tails
Thaw lobster tail, place into large pot of boiling water. When
water comes back to a boil, lower heat and begin timing.
