Butter Poached Maine Lobster Tails Recipe

Recipe by: lobsterfrommaine.com

2 Servings


3 large lobster tails cut in ½ in the shell
1.5 stick of butter, melted
Herbs of your choice: tarragon, dill, parsley, cilantro, basil or a mixture of all


Step 1.
In a skillet melt the butter on low heat.
Once melted add the tails flesh side down and cook on low heat spooning butter over the shell once in a while for about 10-15 minutes.

Step 2.
Turn the tail on shell side and continue basting. The tails are ready when the shells are bright red and the lobster meat is firm and opaque.

Step 3.
Serve directly from the pan with lemon wedges, herbs and crusty bread.

Note: You can also take the tails out of the shells. Turn the heat to medium high and deglaze the pan with 1 cup of wine, heavy cream or stock to create a thick sauce, return the tail to the pan and serve.
