Prep & Ingredients

To prepare Lobster tail first pre-heat your broiler. Cut the top shell of the thawed Lobster tail lengthwise then pull apart until the meat is exposed. Place tails on a baking sheet and season with melted butter and Harbour House Crabs seafood seasoning. Broil until the meat is opaque and lightly browned on top, approximately 5-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with melted butter and lemon wedges.


Boiled lobster tails

  1. Fill a large saucepan with water and add 1 teaspoon of salt.
  2. Bring the water to the boil and drop the lobster tails into the pan.
  3. Boil the tails for about 1 minute per oz of total weight. If there are 5 oz of lobster tails, you will need to cook them for 5 minutes.

Steamed lobster tails

  1. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of a pan and add salt.
  2. Bring the water to the boil.
  3. Insert a wooden skewer or cocktail stick down the length of each lobster tail. This will prevent them from curling up upon steaming.
  4. Place the tails on a steaming rack placed inside the pan and cover with a lid.
  5. Steam the tails for about 7 or 8 minutes, drain and serve hot.

Grilled lobster tails

  1. Insert a wooden skewer into the lobster tails to prevent them from curling on boiling.
  2. Prepare a large saucepan of salted water according to instructions above for boiling lobster tails.
  3. Once the water has reached a fierce boil, drop the tails in and cook for 4 minutes.
  4. Drain the tails and position them on their backs once they have cooled slightly.
  5. With a sharp knife, split the soft top shell of the tail, lengthways down the middle, but leave the hard shell underneath in tact.
  6. Pour some melted butter and lemon juice over the meat of the tails and place shell side down into a pre-heated grill.
  7. Grill for approximately 7 - 8 minutes under a medium - hot heat or until the meat is opaque, no longer transparent and firm to the touch.

Baked lobster tails

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Split the soft shell of the lobster tail in half lengthways with a sturdy knife.
  3. Place the lobster tails on a baking tray and brush them with melted butter.
  4. Bake in the oven for between 8 and 10 minutes.
