Ingredients

  • 2 lobster tails, 5-8 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon Lemon Twist Salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler to high or 500 degrees F. Place oven rack in the middle position.

  4. Place lobster tray in oven and broil for about 8-10 minutes until the shell becomes a bright red and the meat is tender and cooked through.
  5. Season with additional Lemon Twist Salt, if desired. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika or tarragon leaves.
  6. Serve with lemon wedges.
