How to make Broiled Lobster Tails
- Preheat the broiler.
- Butterfly the lobster tails on a baking sheet. Cut the top of the lobster shells lengthwise with a pair of scissors/shears or even a sharp knife.
- Pull the shells apart slightly to give enough space to season the meat. Lather the meat with melted butter, paprika, salt, and white pepper. Make sure that the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the lobster flesh.
- Broil the lobster tails for 5-10 minutes. The meat inside has to turn opaque and the shell a light brownish tinge. Transfer to a serving plate.
- Despite popular beliefs, lobsters do not scream when you cook them. The noise you usually hear is the release of trapped air inside their guts.
- No matter what colored shells they may have, all lobsters turn red when cooked.
- There was a time when lobsters weren’t the most expensive dish on the menu. In fact, they were served to the poor in the late 17th
