Baked Lobster Tail

Updated: Apr 7, 2023

Lobster tails are so scrumptious when baked to perfection in butter, paprika, garlic powder, and a kiss of lemon. Nestled in white wine and butter base paprika garlic sauce. The tender, juicy lobster meat is succulent when it is taken out of the oven just at the right temperature. Served with and extra side of melted butter, garlic and paprika makes the perfect delightful dish.

Lobster tails are such a delicate seafood item it can set the tone for a romantic evening with that special someone or a meal created just because you want to feel special all by yourself.

Quick Tips

Lobster tails can take anywhere from 8-20 minutes to bake. It truly depends on the size of the lobster and the oven temperature. Preheating oven at 350°F I cook my lobster tails as follows:

Small (4-6 oz) 8-12 minutes

Medium ( 6-8 oz) 12-15 minutes

Large (8-10 oz) 15-20 minutes

Shell should be a orange color, lobster meat should be succulent not rubbery or hard like a steak. Then it's over cooked. internal temperature should be 140°F.

How to remove the lobster tail from the shell
