World’s Easiest Lobster Recipe!

lobster tail recipe

Ok, confession time: I’d never actually cooked a lobster before this recipe. 

We were at Costco the other day, and Superman said he wanted to get some seafood. We stumbled upon a 5-pack of lobster tails, and I decided since none of our kids had ever tried lobster, I should give it a go! I couldn’t believe how easy they were, and these were succulent and tender! This is definitely an easy lobster recipe!

Total time
  • 5 lobster tails (you could cut this recipe in half if you want to do less!)
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  1. Lay the lobster tails on a baking sheet covered with foil.
  2. Using kitchen shears, cut the top of the tail all the way down to the fin.
  3. Gently pull the open shell apart a bit.
  4. Mix together the butter, garlic powder, salt and paprika.
  5. Drizzle into the cavity that you created.
  6. Broil in oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on size of your lobster tails.
  7. Tails are done when the flesh is white and the shells are reddish-orange.
  8. To watch how this is done, see my video below!
