Broiled Lobster Tails

Perfect oven-broiled Lobster Tails in 10-minutes. This is the quickest, tastiest and easiest way to cook lobster tails.

Broiled Lobster Tails


  • 2 Lobster tails
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter, divided
  • sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper


  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Set lobster tails on a baking sheet or in an oven safe dish.
  3. With sharp kitchen scissors or a knife, carefully cut the top of the lobster tail shell down to the tip of the tail, avoiding the meat. Remove any grit if needed.
  4. Carefully pull shell down, so meat looks like it is sitting on top of shell and open.
  5. For photo-worthy presentation, slide a lemon wedge or two under the lobster meat in between the meat and the tail.
  6. Mix spices in a small bowl. Sprinkle with spices.
  7. Add small pats of butter along the lobster tail.
  8. Place in oven on an upper middle rack.
  9. Let cook until meat is opaque and white, about 8-10 minutes. Time will vary with size of lobster tails. Fully cooked lobster will be 140-145 degrees internal temperature.
  10. Remove and serve immediately with drawn butter.
