Broiled lobster

At our home we eat shellfish regularly (from shrimp to full crabs), but this was the first time we bought and cooked lobster. In fact, it was just my second or third time in my life that I had a lobster tail. It was pretty good, but the price still seemed steep ($14 each). Here’s how I cooked it tonight.

Ingredients (for 2)
* 2 lobster tails
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 1/2 cup lemon juice
* 1 medium onion
* paprika
* salt

1. Wash the lobster. Get your cooking shears and carefully cut and discard the semi-hard membrane along the belly of the lobster in order to expose it for easier cook-through.
2. Peel, and then cut the onion in small pieces. Place the pieces in a large bowl.
3. In the same bowl add the oil, lemon, some salt and a generous amount of paprika. Using a fork mix everything well.
4. Place the lobster tails there too and let it marinate in the fridge for one to two hours.
5. Preheat the broiler for 10 minutes. In a grilling oven dish place your lobster with the hard shell facing down and pour half of the marinating sauce on it. Broil for 4 minutes.
6. Turn your lobster tails so the hard shell faces up and broil for 7 minutes.
7. Turn again, add the other half of the marinating sauce and cook for 3 more minutes. Enjoy with spicy tartar sauce and vegetables.
