The Perfect Addition to Any New Years Celebration

Baked Lobster Tail Recipe Lobster and crab are the perfect alternative to a traditional dinner and will have guests raving about you!

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.

When put quite simply: Cape Porpoise Lobster Company is the best of the best when it comes to quality seafood. In picturesque Cape Porpoise, Maine, in the village of Kennebunkport lies Cape Porpoise Pier. The Pier is an active fishing port; our people can be found right in the middle of all of this activity. It is in this port where we buy our lobsters, shrimp, mussels, and other fresh seafood–directly from the fishermen at the pier.
