For all methods, the lobster tails must first be completely thawed as they are flash-frozen to maintain freshness during delivery. To thaw, place them in the refrigerator for 10 hours prior to cooking.

To broil or bake Maine lobster tails, separate all of the meat from the shell except for the intact area at the tail by lifting it up with a sharp knife and placing it on top of the shell. Season the tail with butter or olive oil and cook in the oven at 375 degrees for one-and-a-half minutes for every ounce of meat. Serve immediately with warm olive oil or butter. This method results in an impressive presentation when serving guests.

During the summer months or whenever weather permits, grilling is a great way to educe flavor out of the lobster meat. First, set the grill to medium heat and brush the lobster tails with olive oil or butter and season with salt and pepper. Next, with the meat side down, grill for three to five minutes. Then, flip the tails over for another three to five minutes, being sure to avoid any open flames to prevent burning. The lobster tails are done when the meat becomes opaque.

For the cook with too many things going on at once, boiling lobster tails is a great way to allow for multitasking. Use six to eight cups of salted boiling water for every four lobster tails. Place the lobster into the boiling water and reduce to a simmer, cooking the tails for one minute for every ounce of lobster meat. Finally, remove them from the water, pat them dry, cut the shells from the center to the end using a sharp knife and serve.

To pan sear the lobster tail meat, remove the meat from the shell by cutting lengthwise from center to end with a sharp knife, being careful not to cut the meat in half. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, melt two tablespoons of butter or olive oil and cook the meat for three minutes on one side until the meat on that side of the lobster tail is opaque. Flip the tail over and cook until just opaque. Serve with hot butter or olive oil, lemon and your favoring seasonings, or just eat plain!
