Lobster tails are one of my favorite meals to make at home on special occasions. While lobster tails can be made a variety of ways, such as steamed, cooking them in the oven is quick, easy and absolutely delicious. http://www.ehow.com/how_4779451_cook-lobster-tails-oven.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=freestyle&utm_campaign=fanpage
Butterflying a lobster tail means to cut open the hard top shell through the meat. This is easy to do and helps the meat cook evenly. Plus, the cooked lobster meat puffs up and over the shell, giving the tail a showy restaurant-style appearance.
“If, when buying a boiled lobster, you are in doubt as to its freshness, just pull back the tail, then suddenly release it; if the tail flies back with a snap, the lobster is quite fresh, but if it goes back slowly, you may be pretty sure the lobster has been boiled and kept for some days.”
