  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Pull the edges of the split lobster shells apart and gently lift the tail meat to rest above the shells. Place the prepared lobster tails on a baking sheet.
  3. Brush each portion of tail meat with 1 teaspoon melted butter.
  4. Lightly mix the crushed crackers, crabmeat, 1/4 cup of clarified butter, parsley, seafood seasoning, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and white pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  5. Spoon half the stuffing onto each lobster tail; press lightly to slightly shape the stuffing so it doesn't fall off.
  6. Bake the lobster tails in the preheated oven until the meat is opaque and the stuffing is golden brown on top, 10 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lobster tail should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C).

I will make it again but will cook the lobster tails a little first before adding the crab meat mix. The crab meat mix cooks faster than the inside meaty portion of the lobster tail. I think t...

Amazing entree. Made it for dinner this evening, followed the directions as written. I added half a lemon juice, great taste and texture. Paired with it linguine tossed in a butter and garlic. ...

These were fantastic. I think I added too much lemon zest though. Still very good.

This was excellent! The only things I changed were using a cajun blend instead of a seafood blend of spices. As with another person it would be good to know what size lobsters, I used small one...
