I am no longer a lobster tail making virgin! Honestly, I admit that they have always intimated me. Cannot even believe how quick and so super easy Broiled Lobster Tails are to prepare. Keep in mind, this is more of a “how-to” or “step-by-step,” rather than a recipe. It’s all about technique. You be the judge on how much, or how little butter as you want use.
Question is always, where on earth can I find lobster tails? Most often, you will be able to find in the fresh or seafood section of your local grocery store. If not, look in the frozen case. Luckily, I was able to grab these beauties from The Carolina Meat & Fish Co. Not local to Charlotte? They can ship to you.

HOW TO PREPARE THE LOBSTER FOR BROILING
With a sharp knife or kitchen shears, cut a straight line down the center of the top of the shell. If you do not own kitchen shears, you should. Click here to get a pair!
Pull the flesh out from the center cut so that it lays on top of the shell. Place a wedge of lemon underneath the flesh and the bottom of the shell. This will not only add flavor, but will also help keep the meat on top of the shell.
Remove the vein. Season the lobster tails with kosher salt, black pepper and a touch of paprika. Top each tail with two pats of butter and a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley. If you so desire, you can melt the butter and pour it over, or brush it on the tails.
HOW TO PREPARE BROILED LOBSTER TAILS
Turn on the broiler. Place lobster tails on a baking pan or this flat cast iron pan from Lodge. Click here to grab one.
Place under broiler for about 8 to 10 minutes. The tail is fully-cooked when the meat turns opaque. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serve these amazing Broiled Lobster Tails with additional lemon wedges and drawn butter. ENJOY!!!
Now that you know how to broil a lobster tail, use this same technique for grilling and make my Grilled Lobster Tail Pasta.
Choose a smaller lobster tail and serve as Surf and Turf with your favorite steak!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
