I thought this recipe would be bland, but it really wasn't! It was very easy to make and had a great flavor - light and fresh.

The lobster was moist and not rubbery at all! The seasoning was good. I did make one tweak though - I butterflied it instead following these directions: http://www.lobsterhelp.com/butterflying-lobster-tails.html

Fantastic, easy recipe! The only change I made was using a sprinkle of garlic-salt instead of regular salt. I will be making this again!

Good, it is definitely a side dish because it is so small after cooking.

This is my 3rd New Year's Eve in a row that we created lobster tails using this recipe. The only thing I have changed is adding some Old Bay to the mix! Delicious.

Excellent recipe! A definite keeper! Never made lobster tail before, I'm so glad I tried it after reading all the good reviews. They were right, it's easy fast. They came out tender, juicy and perfectly flavored. My company loved it!

I never made lobster tail before and decided to give it a try for Valentine's Day. It was so easy and really delicious. I didn't quite understand the instructions for cutting the cartiladge since I've never worked with lobster before - but i just winged it and it turned out good. I made garlic butter for the side also.
