Butter Poached Lobster Tails

Butter Poached Lobster Tails by Easy Life Meal and Party PlanningOne of the many things I love about Florida is the lobster tails. They are easy to grill, boil and tempura. I was watching a food competition show and they had to poach lobster in a butter sauce so I had to give it a try. My daughter was happy that she was home that night and got to be my guinea pig. You start by fixing a sauce, it enhances the flavors at the end. This recipe is for four lobster tails, if you are only cooking two freeze the extra sauce for later.

Bring 1 inch of salted water to boil and add tails cook about 2 minutes. Remove and rinse under cold water. Remove meat, it will not be cooked and that is what you want. Cut into pieces and set aside. Rewarm the sauce and add the butter. Squeeze lemon over lobster and add it to the sauce. Cook until lobster is no longer translucent.
