Nothing beats a fresh lobster tail. I love surf and turf or anything that involves lobster. Also, it’s so easy and quick to make. I love that lobster doesn’t even need much seasoning because its already so delicious by itself. I made these lobster tails recently and served them along side a grilled ribeye steak with creamed spinach and roasted potatoes. We were craving a steakhouse style dish! I thought it would be so delicious to bake them in a delicious garlic butter sauce instead of dipping each bite of lobster in a bowl full of butter. We absolutely loved it! This is such a classic way to eat lobster but it was so tasty, so I had to share with you all! Enjoy!
- 4 lobster tails – about 1.5lbs (Cut in half vertically down the middle)
- 7 tablespoons of butter
- 1 tablespoon of fresh minced garlic
- 1/2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of fresh minced parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
- Set oven to 400°F.
- Cut lobster tails in half (the long way) directly down the middle.
- In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Once butter is melted sauté garlic until golden.
- Next add parsley, red pepper flakes and lemon juice into the sauce pan. Mix. Turn off heat.
- Set raw lobster tails shell side down (meat facing you) in a baking dish.
- Pour butter mixture directly over lobster tails.
- Bake uncovered for about 15-20 minutes OR until internal temperature reaches 145°F.
