  • Cut feet and membrane off the bottom side of each lobster tail. Run a knife inside the top of each tail to loosen meat from the shell. Squeeze some lemon juice between the meat and top side of loosened shell.

  • Mix Parmesan cheese, butter, creamy salad dressing, and paprika together in a bowl.

  • Shape 2 sheets of aluminum foil into boats just wide enough to hold lobster tails upright; sides should be 1 inch high. Set lobster tails belly-side up in boats. Squeeze more lemon juice over lobster meat. Spoon Parmesan cheese mixture evenly on top.

  • Set lobster tails inside the prepared baking dish. Pour in 1/2 inch water around the boats. Place juiced lemon wedges in the water.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lobster meat flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Turn oven to broil; broil until tops are crispy, about 2 minutes. Crack oven door open; broil for 1 to 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Substitute mayonnaise for the creamy salad dressing if preferred.

Thought I was using ranch dressing but instead used creamy blue cheese. To it I added the melted butter but used smoked paprika with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Turned out wonderful with the lobster. I plan on using the mixture on many other things from steak to past. Read More

I made a double batch of this as written for my husband and kids and they did not like it. Even after scraping off the "sauce" they didn't like how it made the meat taste. Read More

As noted I used mayo instead of Helman's. I found this to be a great way to cook the tails! The meat was super tender and flavorful. I will definitely use this again. Read More

Made as written except that I used mayo instead of Miracle Whip as the recipe submitter mentioned in the footnotes. This was excellent! Thanks for sharing! Read More
