Cook Frozen Lobster Tails In The Oven For A Quick And Fuss-Free Dinner
While cooking frozen lobster tails may sound complicated, using the oven can make the process quick and fuss-free. First, thaw the lobster tails thoroughly.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F before roasting the frozen lobster. This is the ideal temperature to bring out the meat’s sweet, delicate flavors.
Arrange the tails on a baking tray while your oven heats up. Then add pepper, garlic, paprika, lemon juice, and melted butter to the meat.
Bake the lobster until thoroughly cooked, which should take no longer than 20 minutes. Overcooking the lobster will result in tough, rubbery flesh.
Another way to cook frozen lobster tails in the oven is to use the broiler function. Prepare the lobster tails the same way, but place them under the broiler at 500 degrees F.
Your lobster should be ready when the shells are red and the meat glistens. It will take about 5 to 10 minutes to bring the meat to an internal temperature of 140 degrees F.
