Butter Poaching:


You can either make up a melted butter mixture with the spices mixed in or brush on the melted butter and sprinkle the spices on, whichever you prefer. 

When butter poaching your lobster tails be sure not to boil the butter or else it will separate and will not be as good.

Make sure when you buy frozen tails that you thaw them completely before cooking.

Quick thawing: in a bowl of cool water.

Long thawing: overnight in the refrigerator.

Do not overcook: The tails are cooked when they are 145 degrees. 

Do not overcrowd: When you are cooking lobster tails make sure they have enough room to cook properly. For instance, if they are boiling or steaming, don’t stack them tightly on top of each other because they need the steam or water to circulate around them completely.
