Boiled Lobster Tails

Boiled Lobster Tails (3 servings)

  • Author: Bobby


  • Six lobster tails, 6 ounces each
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Lemon wedges
  • Chopped parsley


  1. Add water to about two-thirds of a saucepan. Then, add salt and bring to boil. With a pair of tongs, lower each lobster’s tail into the boiling water. If the pot is too small, cook them in batches of two or three.
  2. Boil the tails for 3-5 minutes, or until the shell turns red and the meat is opaque. Then, take them out and cut open the shell to reveal the flesh. Serve with lemon wedges and chopped parsley, along with any of your favorite dipping.
