Baked Lobster Tails
Purchased frozen, let the tails defrost overnight in the refrigerator. When they are ready to cook, first preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. You will need about one tail for every guest. Then, insert the point of a pair of kitchen shears in between the lobster shell and the meat, cutting the shell right down the middle. Make sure you leave the tail fin together!
Do not remove the shell, simply run your finger in between the shell and the meat for better separation. Then, lift the tail through the slit you cut so it rests on top of the hard shell. Place each lobster tail on a baking sheet and brush them with melted butter. When the over is ready, bake the lobster for only 15 minutes. Overcooked lobster will be tough, while perfectly baked lobster will be juicy, full of flavor and ready to eat.
