Citrus Buttered Lobster Tails

Citrus Buttered Lobster Tails

Preparation Time:
Cook time:
Yield: 1 servings


8 oz Lobster Tail, thawed
1/4 cup Water
2 Tbsp Butter or Margarine
1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Orange Peel, finely shredded
1 dash Salt
1 dash ground Ginger
1 dash Paprika


Using a heavy knife, cut through the center of the top shell. Continue cutting through meat, but not through under-shell. Spread the tail open, butterfly-style, so meat is on top. Place lobster tail in shallow baking dish. Pour water atop.

Microwave covered on 50% of power for 5 to 7 minutes or just until meat is opaque. Let stand covered for 5 minutes.

Combine butter or margarine, lemon juice, orange peel, salt, ginger, and paprika. Microwave butter mixture uncovered for 30 to 45 seconds, or until butter is melted. Mix well. Drizzle lobster tail with butter mixture.
