We wanted to have a special dinner for New Years though and went to our health food grocery store and lobster was on sale! We knew we had to get it.
I had never made it before and was worried that I would mess it up and ruin our special dinner (and waste a ton of money).
Luckily, this recipe was super easy and they turned out perfect! If you like lobster, I highly recommend trying this recipe. It’s relatively healthy and absolutely delicious!
Baked Lobster Tails
– 4 lobster tails (8-10 oz each)
– 1 c water
– 1 T minced fresh parsley
– 1/8 t salt
– dash pepper
– 1 T butter, melted
– 2 T lemon juice
– lemon wedges and additional melted butter, optional
Split lobster tails in half lengthwise. With cut side up and using scissors, cut along the edge of shell to loosen the cartilage covering the tail meat from the shell; remove and discard cartilage.
Pour water into a 13×9 baking dish; place the lobster tails in dish. Combine the parsley, salt and pepper; sprinkle over lobster. Drizzle with butter and lemon juice
Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until meat is firm and opaque. Serve with lemon wedges and melted butter, if desired.
