How To Cut Open Lobster Tails
- With sharp kitchen scissors or a knife, carefully cut the top of the lobster tail shell down to the tip of the tail, avoiding the meat.
- Devein and remove any grit if needed.
- Carefully pull shell down, so meat looks like it is sitting on top of shell and open.
How To Make Lobster Tails Look Pretty
Lobster isn’t cheap – so when you make a fabulous dinner, especially for a special occasion, you want it to look nice!
The following tips for how to make your lobster tails look the best will help you present lobster tail just like at your favorite fancy restaurant.
I like to keep the lobster in the shell, but sometimes the way it lays is a bit flat.
To make your lobster look a bit prettier, take a lemon wedge and slide it underneath the lobster tail (so it is in between the shell and the lobster meat) to cook – it will pop up the lobster meat and make the tail look bigger and more full!
You can see how I use lemon wedges to prop up lobster tails in the shell in this video:
How To Cook Lobster Tail in the Oven
Cooking lobster is incredibly easy in an oven! Bake or broil, if you have an oven, you can make lobster in it using these easy tips and tricks!
If you have a very large lobster tail it will take a bit longer – but smaller tails should be perfect at around 10 minutes – about 1 to 1/2 minutes per ounce.
You can tell a lobster tail has fully cooked when it turns opaque, white, and the shell turns bright red – and the meat has reduced slightly and become firmer.
To ensure your lobster tail is perfectly cooked, insert a digital meat thermometer into the fattest part of the lobster tail (take caution to keep the thermometer away from the shell.)
Fully cooked lobster will be 140-145 degrees internal temperature.
For broiled lobster, keep the lobster 5″ from the broiler.
For baked lobster, set oven to 425 degrees and bake 1- 1 1/2 minutes per ounce of lobster meat.
