Exquisite lobster tails well soused in finger licking luscious garlic butter.
Lobsters have always been one of my favorite crustaceans. When i was little, my dad used to cook the lobster meat in three differnt sauces and fill it back into the shell in layers for it to look captivating.
Up until now I didn’t know how to clean a lobster but once I got the hang of it, it was real fun playing around with the tail.
Haven’t got my hands on the Maine lobsters yet. I have tried this recipe using the spine lobster. Once you get a hang of how to clean them, cooking it isn’t very tedious.
This recipe is very simple and not time consuming at all!
- 3 lobster tails ( cut into half or cut to expose the meat)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 9-10 pods of garlic
- Parsley chopped fine
- 1 tbs Lime juice
- Salt to taste ( if you’ve used salted butter try not to add too much salt)
- 1 green chilly (optional)
- 1tbs pepper powder ( optional)
Wash and clean the lobsters.
Detach the head and split the tail. You can either cut them in half or expose the tail.
I’ve cut the tail in half.
I have also marinated some prawns to keep the lobsters some company! 😉
For the marination,
In a bowl,
Once the prawns and lobsters have been cleaned and washed. Marinade ten with chopped garlic, green chilly, lime juice,butter and parsley. Add a pinch of salt and set aside.
In another bowl, mix together some melted butter and garlic.
Line the baking tray with butter.
Place the lobsters and prawns, brush it with the melted butter. You can add some cheddar over the lobster if you wish. 😀
Bake the meat for not more than 20 minutes at 150 degree Celcius.
Over baking them lobster meat will make it rubbery.
And there you have it..All set to scoop up some delicious lobster meat!
