Steamed lobster tails. If using cherry tomatoes, it is great over white rice with a little bit of the sauce left in the pot.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Carefully cut lobster tails down the center using scissors, making a wide enough incision for the meat to "flower" out during cooking. De-vein the meat, if desired.

  • Combine wine, cherry tomatoes, butter, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, and salt in a large pot; add lobster tails. Bring heat to medium and steam lobster tails for 4 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon garlic powder and continue steaming until meat is cooked through and tender, about 3 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

All stoves and pot we use are different. If this is your first time cooking lobster tails, keep an eye to make sure you do not over-cook. Over-cooking will cause the meal to be tough and chewy.

I didn't use the tomatoes and I steamed just the one lobster tail. I had to adjust the time as the lobster tail that I cooked was on the smaller size. The lobster was wonderful. I thought that I could use the cooking liquid for a dipping sauce but it would be better served with clarified butter. Thanks for sharing. Read More
