Broiled Lobster Tails

We were shopping at Costco last week, which is now limited to vegetable, meat, cheese, and some nuts as our purchase options due to carbohydrates being off the menu for the time being.  So while I do not normally get much seafood there, I was unable to resist it recently.  And it was a pleasant surprise how delicious this very simple preparation of lobster tails was.  And quickly made, so another good week night menu option.

This is more of a technique than a recipe.
  1. Cut a section out of the tail.  You can do this on either side, but you want them to lay flat in the broiling pain and to have an exposed surface.  Sprinkle pepper and a seafood seasoning mix evenly over the exposed tail meat.  If you don't have seafood seasoning, you can use salt and paprika instead.  Then put about a clove of garlic, minced, on each tail, and top with a tablespoon of butter thinly sliced over each tail Some of this will melt and roll off, but a lot of it will coat and flavor the tail as it cooks.
  2. Broil 8-10 minutes.
  3. Squeeze some lemon juice over each tail and serve.
