Defrost the lobster tails. Grab your kitchen shears. Begin the cut with the bottom blade right under the shell. Only cut the shell and not the meat. Proceed the cut down the center all the way to the base of the tale. Cut to base of tail. Grab each side of the shell and gently pry away the shell away from the meat. Continue to pry the shell away from the meat but keep the back of the meat connected to the shell. Once the meat is freed, grab the meat, squeeze the shell together to close the gap and lay the meat on top of the shell. Cut a small slit in the top of the meat. Grab the loose part of the meat and fold over the shell.

Prepare lobster marinade of melted butter, a dash of paprika, a dash of garlic powder, a squirt of lemon juice and pepper. Drizzle lobster tail with marinade.

Prepare grill. Cook on medium-high heat. Cover grill and cook for 15-20 minutes. Grill lobster until just opaque.

Clarified Lemon Butter:

  • 3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  • 3 lemons, zested

In a small, heavy bottomed saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat. Pour the mixture into a 2-cup glass measuring jug. Let the melted butter stand for 5 minutes. Using a spoon, remove the foam from the top of the butter. Place the lemon zest in small bowl. pour the clarified butter over the lemon zest and discard the milk solids left in the bottom of the jug.

Yield: 1 1/4 cups

This is a perfect way to celebrate my one year anniversary in blogland:)

Oh, that looks delicious. I have had a couple meals with lobster in them since I've been in Florida. Even though we are in a bit of family crisis, I still took pictures...always a blogger:) Even so, I haven't had plain lobster tail and it looks wonderful.
