How to Prepare and Cook or Bake Lobster

baked lobster tail
Lobster is one of the many enjoyable seafood in our house. It is easy to make yet can upgrade any meal from bla to extraordinary. I've started using my toaster oven a lot more since the weather was not so hot this winter, and since my barbecue-chef has not been home in the evenings.  I have had my toaster oven since 2000, and it has been remarkable. It looks all beat up, but works miracles all the time.

Ingredients: Sea salt, Ground Pepper or Pepper Medley, Butter
Preparation:
1) Thaw out your lobster tails in cold water. If you do it in warm water it will not bake or cook well, the meat will be tough.
2) Test the lobster tail for readiness by folding the tail from one end to the other. It should bend or curl like Rollie-Pollie, if it doesn't then it isn't ready for you to cut yet. In that case wait.
3) Cut a straight line down its back and a gentle cut at the end of its tail.
4) Reach inside of each side of the lobster and pull out the meat gently. Lay the meat on top of the shell.
5) Season the lobster tail with the pepper, sea salt and a little butter.
6) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
7) Place your lobster on a baking sheet and bake the lobster tail in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes.
8) Remove the lobster tails and enjoy!
*The video below demonstrates the cutting and presentation of the lobster.

    1. Thank you Miz Helen. I sure wish I have some lobsters today. I am always craving for seafood in the summer...much easier to prepare.

  3. We went to Ruth's Chris and had lobster. They never brought out the melted butter. When questioned, they said you have to ask for it. Um, who eats lobster without butter? Shouldn't that be standard just to bring it out? lol

    1. You're right! At least a little bit of butter, if not a lot. I like it on the lobster when baking, not necessary to dip in or anything. I like my seafood plain usually.

  4. Whoa wee..these are mouth-watering and tasty looking lobster tails!

    I was watching the you tube, and taking that meat out of the shell looked quite a job..but sure tempting to try!

    1. I think taking the meat out of the shell is probably the hardest part, the rest is simple.

  6. That looks wonderful. I don't get much seafood now that I live in Arizona. I may need to change that. :) I'm dropping by and a new follower from the Aloha Friday Blog Hop. I hope you can stop by and say hello. Have a great weekend!
