Steamed Lobster Tails

This weekend our local supermarket had lobster tails on sale for $5 each. Granted, they were small, but still it’s lobster. My Father made steamed lobsters for dinner. He served it will melted butter.

You can make lobster tails several ways. They can be boiled, grilled, steamed or baked.

Steamed Lobster Tails

Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of a pan and add salt.

Bring the water to the boil.

Insert a wooden skewer or cocktail stick down the length of each lobster tail. This will prevent them from curling up upon steaming.

Place the tails on a steaming rack placed inside the pan and cover with a lid.

Steam the tails for about 7 or 8 minutes, drain and serve hot.
