Have you ever wanted a Lobster and your mouth starts watering when you are looking at the menu? Then, when the waiter brings your lobster out, you can't wait to taste it. Then you taste it and your like
"what is this"?
The Lobster was either too mushy or too tough to enjoy. Here's a secret.... if you cook a frozen lobster tail and it is mushy, ragged and disintegrating, then it is bad. It was probably a dead, or near dead lobster when it was made. If it was to tough then the chef had over cooked your poor Lobster. But don't worry for half the price you would pay at a restaurant, you can make it in your own home with my help.
This Lobster was soooooo Delicious and Easy to make, I almost kissed myself LOL.
First things first, you need to hit the market. Below is a list of everything you need to make this Lobster Tail.
Steamed Lobster Tail
8 OZ LOBSTER TAIL,
3 TABLESPOONS BUTTER, MELTED
1 TEASPOON SALT
1 TEASPOON BLACK PEPPER
1 TEASPOON GARLIC POWDER
1 TEASPOON PAPRIKA
1 TEASPOON FRESH PARSLEY, CHOPPED
2 TEASPOON LEMON JUICE (BETTER IF YOU SQUEEZE A LEMON)
Using kitchen shears, cut along the middle of the top of the shell. Make sure you cut in a straight line. (Do not cut through the end of the tail)
Separate the meat from the two sides of the shell and lift the meat up and half way out from inside the shell.
Preheat oven to 350°F. While the oven is warming up, melt butter in microwave. Once the butter is melted combine the old bay, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, lemon juice, and parsley, then pour the mixture evenly over the lobster meat.
Place the tails onto a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the lobster is fully cooked (but not rubbery).
