Feel like splurging on a nice dinner, but don’t prefer the fussy restaurant experience? Make lobster tails for you and your loved one(s). Lobster is a luxury and the price tag certainly reflects it, but lobster is well worth the extra dollars for a change of pace from the regular chicken and pork dishes. Like a nice steak, lobster tail is very easy to prepare because the meat itself brings rich flavor.
Lobster tails are much easier to prepare than cooking a whole lobster. If possible, try to purchase freshly-caught lobster straight from the ocean. To prepare the tails, slice each one open by cutting the top shell halfway through lengthwise, then crack open with your fingers and pour in the sauce. The slightly spicy and nutty-tasting sauce is a mixture of melted ghee, Sriracha, chives and lime juice.
