BAKED STUFFED LOBSTER TAILS
Serves 2-4 | Prep time: 25 minutes | Cook time: 35 minutes
4 Lobster Tails
150ml dry white wine (optional)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 Tbsp Italian parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
Salt and pepper
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
Add in parsley and crushed garlic, saute for 30 seconds, and remove from heat
Add in breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper, mix to blend, and set aside.
Heat oven to 230°C.
Using sharp kitchen shears cut the shell of the lobster tails all the way down to the flippers. Be careful not to but through the lobster meat.
Gently pull apart the shell to expose the lobster meat inside.
Once you can see the lobster meat, gently lift the lobster tail meat even further out so it sits on top of the shell but is still connected at the flipper
Make a 3.5cm incision down the center of the exposed meat, season the meat with salt and pepper.
Pour wine into a baking dish. Place lobster tails in dish.
Spoon breadcrumb mixture into the incision and over the top of the meat. Don’t be afraid to load it up!
Bake uncovered 10-12 minutes, until meat turns from translucent to opaque (white).
Lightly drizzle the pan juices over the lobster tails for extra flavor.
Serve with more melted butter and lemon wedges!
