Broiled Lobster Tails

Meowie’s note: I got this recipe from this site. Followed it and it is very tasteful!

Since broiler temperatures vary dramatically, the distance from the broiler AND cooking times will need to adjusted for your stove.

  1. Lay your lobster tail on a cutting board, with the underside (the soft shell side) facing up.
  2. With kitchen scissors cut a slit in the soft shell lengthwise down the center, leaving the hard shell on the backside of the lobster intact. Be careful not to cut into the lobster meat.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Place the lobster tail on a baking sheet with the hard shell facing down. Lightly baste with butter.
  5. Place 4-5 inches beneath the broiler. Watching carefully. Broil for 5-10 minutes, or until the shell is red and the meat is white.

Tip on how to cook lobster tail: When broiling lobster tails you may want to leave your oven door open slightly to help prevent the lobster tails from baking.

Boiled Lobster Tails

  1. Put enough water into a large pot to completely submerge your lobster tail.
  2. For each quart of water add 1 teaspoon of salt.
  3. Bring the water to a boil.
  4. Place the lobster tail in the pot and return the water to a full boil.
  5. Boil for approximately 1 minute to 1-1/2 minutes per ounce and then remove the tail from the water. See below…
  6. Serve hot with melted, or clarified butter, and lemon wedges.

Weight 4 ounces, boil 4-6 minutes
Weight 5 ounces, boil 5-7 minutes
Weight 6 ounces, boil 6-9 minutes
Weight 7 ounces, boil 7-10 minutes

If boiling several lobster tails at once, add additional cooking time, dependent on the size of the tail.

FOR THE FILET MIGNON

Conveniently serves 2

Ingredients:

2 (4 to 6 ounces) 1-inch thick filet mignon steaks

Olive oil

Salt and Peppper (after cooking)


1/2 cup cabernet
wine
(can substitute any dry red wine of your choice)


1 to 2 tablespoons butter

Bring steaks to room temperature before cooking. Coat steaks lightly with olive oil.

Do not salt your steaks just before cooking. Salt bring moisture (water) to the surface of the steak, and the water sits on the surface as you cook the steak. Thus, you are again basically steaming the steak. I know that a lot of people do salt their steaks before cooking, but trust me and don’t salt – the result will be juicy, delicious steaks to serve your family and guests! Salt after the steak is cooked to your liking, has rested the required time, and just before serving.

Using the Pan-Searing or Sear-Roasting techniques (see below techniques), proceed to cook your steak to your desired doneness. Use a meat thermometer to test for doneness:

Rare – 120 degrees F
Medium Rare – 125 degrees F
Medium – 130 degrees F

Add the wine to the pan and bring to a boil, scraping any pieces of steak off the bottom of the pan and stirring them into the emerging sauce. Let the liquid boil until reduced to approximately 1/3 cup. Remove pan from heat. Add the butter and mix it in by swirling the pan. Pour the sauce over the steaks just before serving.

Bon Apetit!
