This recipe is for 1 pound of lobster tails so that can be 2-8 ounce lobster tails or 4-4ounce tails. All lobster tails come frozen so the first thing we have to do is thaw them.

  1. Thaw tails in the plastic wrap that they came in for 45 minutes in cool water. 

  2. Cut the top shell of tails with kitchen shears to last knuckle. 

  3. Crack open the tail and piggyback the meat on top of the shell.

  4. Glaze the tails (recipe below) in layers as if you were brushing it with a wax coating. 

  5. Sprinkle with paprika and herbs. 

  6. Pour ½ cup of white wine in the bottom of the baking dish. 

  7. While preheating your oven to 425 degrees leave the tails on the counter to come to room temp.

  8. Bake tails for 20 to 25 minutes depending on size.

  9. Cut into one of the tails.  

  10. When you no longer see a translucent color the dish is complete.


  1. Melt the butter on low heat and try to keep it slightly thicker before adding the rest of the ingredients. 

  2. Remember you’re not cooking the glaze, just incorporating the ingredients for one pound of lobster tails

  3. 1 stick of butter

  4. 1 Tablespoon of olive oil

  5. The juice of one lemon

  6. This is the foundation of your glaze

  7. Feel free to add your own twist

  8. Maybe some garlic, Dijon mustard, honey, or something spicy go nuts!   They’re your tails.
