It’s still Movember and in honor of promoting men’s health I’m happy to add another heart healthy recipe for you! Lobster tails are amazing and super easy to whip up for dinner. And they’re healthy? You bet! This is from the website:

Lobster tail is not only lower in fat and calories than pork, beef, and chicken, but it is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. By adding omega-3 fatty acid into one’s daily diet it will lower your risk of heart disease.

Broiled Lobster Tails

©Drew Emborsky,  aka The Crochet Dude®


Lobster tails (I usually get the ones closes to 4oz each)
Butter (optional)
Black Pepper
Lemon wedges


Preheat broiler

Prepare each tail by cutting along the curved side with sharp kitchen shears


Line a broil proof pan with aluminum foil. Gently pull lobster meat almost completely out and lay it on top of the shell (the meat will still be connected a little right at the base near the end of the tail). With a sharp knife cut a slit along the top and clean out any vein that you may find. Place tails in pan.

Put a small amount of butter in the slit that you cut (this is optional of course depending on how strict of a diet you are on), sprinkle liberally with herbs & spices.


Place under broiler for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the meat is opaque and slightly browned. Remove and serve with lemon wedges.
