  • 3 lobster tails fresh or frozen - if frozen let it thaw in the refrigerator
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges


  • Preheat your broiler on high. Meanwhile prepare the lobster tails. Place them on a cutting board, top side up. Use your finger to lift up the shell a little bit and use a kitchen shears and cut through the middle of the shells. Gently pull apart the shell but leave them on. So the shells will be cut in half leaving the flesh intact. Pull out any black veins if you see one. Run your finger underneath the bottom shells, this will loosen up the flesh from the shells. Now leave the flesh up to rest on the shells (as shown in photos). Brush them generously with butter
  • Place them in the broiler and broil for about 10 minutes. I will not walk out from the oven if I were you. Keep a very close eye on it as you don't want to overcook the lobster tail. The shells will turn red and flesh will turn opaque and that's the sign that the lobster is done. Pull them out from the oven and transfer to serving plate and serve with some lemon wedges and consume at once
