Maine Lobster Tails

Buttery goodness

This is the first time I have prepared lobster tails and I remember seeing someone poach them in butter, so here it goes. I start out cutting the tails in half, that way the meat would definitely be exposed to the buttery goodness.

I place a stick of butter along with some sliced garlic in the pan. The butter and garlic I let cook by itself for a few minutes and then placed the lobster tails in the pan. They cooked in that buttery goodness for just a few minutes. So nice!

  • Hi from USA.

    Where is the rest of the lobster? Do you only get the tails? Are they frozen?

    Live in New England, whole lobsters are about $7/lb & are a summer tradition.

    We serve them boiled with drawn butter. Most times we also have “steamers” - steamed soft shell clams, boiled with potatoes, spicy Linguiça ( Portuguese Sausage) and corn-on-the-cob.

    Wow. I’m hungry.

    • I won't tell you because I do not fully know and I would rather just enjoy what little lobster time I get. 😁

  • We visit Maine often. Generally the first meal is at a 'lobster pound' located on an inlet of the ocean. Lobsters are literally pulled out of the Atlantic Ocean water, cinched in a mesh bag, and boiled within seconds. That first lobster is generally very enjoyable, although by the third day I'm usually sick of them and I switch to haddock or scallops #firstworldproblems

  • Yeah, I am one of the few who just love the tomalley...there is nothing like fresh steamed lobster. I will even skip the butter!

    • Cool..when things look like that it's hard to try it without someone around that has had it before to tell you it's ok.
