Broiled Lobster Tails

How to make Broiled Lobster Tails.


  • 2 Lobster tails
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • sea salt


  1. Pre-heat broiler to high.
  2. Set lobster tails on a baking sheet or in an oven safe dish.
  3. With sharp kitchen scissors or a knife, carefully cut the top of the lobster tail shell down to the tip of the tail, avoiding the meat.
  4. Remove any grit if needed.
  5. Carefully pull shell down, so meat looks like it is sitting on top of shell and open.
  6. Mix spices in a small bowl.
  7. Sprinkle with spices.
  8. Add small pats of butter along the lobster tail.
  9. Place in oven on an upper middle rack.
  10. Let cook until meat is opaque and white, about 8-10 minutes.
  11. Time will vary with size of lobster tails.
  12. Fully cooked lobster will be 140-145 degrees internal temperature.
  13. Remove and serve immediately with drawn butter.
