Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is great for those little frozen lobster tails and when you only have a few minutes. The olive oil makes the lobster moister and the lemon pepper gives it a good flavor."

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler.

  3. Broil the tails about 6 inches from the heat source until they are opaque and slightly browned at the edges, about 10 minutes.
