Broiled Lobster Tails with Garlic Butter

“Lobster is ocean luxe at its best and delivering a feast starring this succulent crustacean couldn’t be easier. No need to wrestle with steaming pots of boiling water, your broiler is your friend and my go-to method for preparing this sumptuous delicacy.” Cheryl and Adam


½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

4 large lobster tails, thawed, if frozen

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Smoked Paprika

Lemon wedges, for serving


Preheat the broiler.

Combine the butter and garlic in a small saucepan and over low, melt the butter.

Remove the pan from the heat and set aside while you prep the lobsters.

Place the lobster (shell side up with the head end facing you) on a parchment-lined baking 

Using kitchen shears, cut down the center of the shell almost all the way to the base of the 
tail, being careful to not cut the meat.

Pry open the sides of the shell to expose the meat.

Gently pull out the meat, leaving only a small connection of meat to the shell at the base of 
the tail.

Squeeze the shell back together and lay the lobster meat on top of it.

Brush the lobsters with some of the garlic butter and season with salt, pepper and paprika.

Broil until the lobster is golden and the meat is opaque in the center, about 10 minutes.

Serve with the remaining garlic butter and lemon wedges.
