Broiled Garlic Butter Lobster tails



  • 2 lobster tails
  • 2 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • (if you prefer, instead of paprika and pepper you can use a mixed seasoning like old bay or tony chachere’s or another cajun)


  1. Preheat broiler to high (or if you have the kind with temperature, 500 degrees F)
  2. Mix spices in a small bowl, then mix in butter and divide the mixture into 2 separate bowls
  3. Place lobster tails on baking sheet in a broiler safe dish
  4. With a knife or sharp scissors cut the lobster shell down from tip to tail, carefully avoiding the meat
  5. Remove visible veins
  6. Pull shell down carefully so meat looks as though its sitting on top
  7. Spoon 1 bowl of the spices and butter mixture on top of the lobster meat (leave the other one aside for now)
  8. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, until meat is opaque/white.
  9. Remove from broiler and serve with the leftover butter mixture
  10. Enjoy!
