Broiled lobster tail with garlic sauce


 Steve has been working late lately and since I didn't want yet another leftover dinner for lunch, I asked him if he'd be coming home early enough to have dinner at home. He said probably not. I said aww..poor you working late again. But "Oooo, seafood dinner!!!!!" was what was going on in my head.(As some of you know, Steve doesn't eat seafood.) Sorry hun. =P

I know traditional way is to serve the lobster tail with clarified butter but since I was sharing with my tot, I wanted to go a little easy on the butter. Plus I just never dunk my crab or lobster in butter for some reason. This garlic sauce is what I use for a lot of simple and quick seafood dish. Like when I grill or broil shrimp or scallops. Lobster looks lonely on the plate but I really just made one. Haha. I served it with one skillet spinach orzo pasta which is so easy, I will post the recipe some time soon. 

Broiled lobster tail with garlic sauce

Ingredients :

1 lobster tail
1 tsp chopped chives for garnish

Garlic sauce
1/2 Tbsp butter
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp paprika
fresh ground black pepper   

Directions :

1. Using kitchen scissors, cut the lobster tail front and back shell lengthwise. Carefully open up the shell slightly, separate the meat from the shell then place it back in the shell.

2. Mix the garlic sauce ingredients in a little bowl and drizzle between the shell and the meat and on top.

3. Broil for 10-12 minutes depending on the size of the lobster tail.(If you have a very large lobster tail, it could even go close to 20mins)

4. When done, sprinkle chopped chives and serve.
