    • 4 lobster tails (defrosted) 
    • 2 tbsp butter (melted) 
    • 1 tsp lemon juice
    • 1 tsp lemon pepper
    • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Hold lobster with tail away from you. Cut on the right side of shell towards the tail. Repeat the process on the left side.
  2. Then make a cut across the back to free the top of the shell.
  3. Rinse the tail with cold water to remove any bits of shell and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Combine melted butter, lemon juice, lemon pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
  5. Brush marinade over lobster flesh.
  6. Set oven to broil (500°F/260°C). Place lobster tails on a broil pan and broil for 6 minutes.
  7. Remove and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

To prevent tail fins from burning, wrap a piece of aluminum foil loosely over them before broiling.
