How to Cook Lobster Tail
Perfectly cooked lobster is one of life's greatest pleasures, but for the uninitiated, cooking your first one can be a little intimidating. For those averse to cooking live lobsters, opt for the tail instead. It’s a little easier and less scary for those delving into cooking crustaceans for the first time. There are many ways to cook lobster tail; the most popular include: boiling, steaming, grilling, baking, and broiling. The tail is considered the prize section thanks to its abundant amounts of meat, and when dipped in nothing more than some melted butter promises sheer culinary bliss.
Defrost - Either overnight in the refrigerator or in a bowl of cold water. The first step in cooking lobster is to thaw it out!
Clean - Once thawed, rinse and dry the exterior of your lobster tail to ensure everything is well cleaned. Then, using a paring knife, run your blade down the center of the tail. Beneath the shell is the digestive tract and should be removed before cleaning. Roe (eggs) are also a good thing to watch out for. Found near the top of the tail; be sure to carefully inspect for that, cleaning and washing away any if found.
Cook - Still in the shell, the tail can be cooked in a myriad of ways. Leaving them in-shell is recommended for more intense cooking methods like boiling, steaming, and grilling; to protect the tender meat from overcooking and add extra flavor. You can also prepare your tail by removing the meat either partially or completely from the shell, seasoning, and then cooking. We recommend using less intense cooking methods like poaching or baking if you plan to expose the meat directly to your heat source.
