Lemon Garlic Lobster Tails

Here’s a recipe for Lemon Garlic Lobster Tails:


4 lobster tails, thawed if frozen

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

4 cloves garlic, minced

Zest of 1 lemon

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Salt and pepper, to taste

Lemon wedges, for serving


Prepare the Lobster Tails:

Use kitchen shears to carefully cut along the top of each lobster tail shell lengthwise, stopping at the tail. Gently lift the meat and place it on top of the shell, keeping it attached at the base.

Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven’s broiler on high heat.

Make the Lemon Garlic Butter:

In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.

Brush the Lobster Tails:

Brush the lemon garlic butter mixture generously over the exposed lobster meat.

Broil the Lobster Tails:

Place the lobster tails on a baking sheet, shell side down. Place the baking sheet under the preheated broiler and broil for 8-10 minutes, or until the lobster meat is opaque and cooked through. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning


Once cooked, remove the lobster tails from the oven and transfer them to serving plates. Serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side.

Optional: Garnish with Extra Lemon Garlic Butter:

If desired, melt any remaining lemon garlic butter and drizzle it over the cooked lobster tails just before serving for extra flavor.

Enjoy your delicious Lemon Garlic Lobster Tails as a special seafood dish for any occasion! Serve them with your favorite side dishes like steamed vegetables, rice, or salad for a complete meal. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences.
