Do you like lobster?
OMG! I love it and prepare it occasionally when I find it on sale. It was found last week so I froze it and Tonight it appeared on my menu. It is easy to fix. I cut the back from the open end to the tail with a pair of kitchen shears. (but not removing it from the shell until it has steamed). I steam it until the brown is orange tail turns bright red orange and the meat is white. You will see it is no longer opaque as it is when it is raw. I melt butter and season it with garlic and paprika and lemon juice. Pour that over the cooked tail and you are ready to enjoy a piece of heaven. Tonight I served it with some pasta and tomato/ basil sauce and sliced avocado.
