Lobster tail is one of those recipes that is almost too easy to prepare. They are simple enough to be made by any cooking enthusiast, even if you are a beginner at cooking. You can also try making it from scratch if you are feeling a bit adventurous. Here’s how to do that in just a few minutes!
One of the key things you need for successfully cooking lobster tail is a pot that will not boil over or get scalded. You do not want to find yourself having to throw the whole mess away because your stovetop was too hot! One thing that I would consider a bad idea with this recipe is using a deep fryer. Though it is quite an old-fashioned way of cooking lobster tails, it does not give you the same results as a deep-fryer would.
Many people believe that cooking lobster tails in a pan with any type of cooking oil will give them a tough, rubbery texture. The fact of the matter is, cooking lobster tail in a pan with any type of cooking oil will give you a rubbery texture. This is completely normal, so do not worry. What you need to pay attention to is that when you have finished grilling your lobster tails, they will be extremely tender. You can tell because the meat will be very lightly browned inside.
As far as cooking lobster tail in a skillet, this is not the optimum way to do it. Since lobster meat is extremely sensitive, you need to bring it to just around the stage of cooked lobster meat at most. When you bring it to this point, you need to use a side burner to thoroughly heat the oil, not the main burner. A side burner will also allow the cooking process to continue at a low heat so you do not over-heat the lobster meat.
Another common way to cook lobster tails is to allow them to defrost on their own. You can defrost them in the refrigerator by simply removing the package from the container and putting the tail inside. You then allow them to sit at room temperature for about a day until they are pliable enough to be defrosted in the freezer.
You can defrost the lobster tail by leaving it in the refrigerator for about a day. You can then remove the tail and put it in the pot to cook for up to ten minutes. This cooking time will depend on the size of the pot that you have. Also, make sure that the pot is placed over medium-high heat. Remember, if the pot boils, it will take a longer cooking time.
If you would like to learn more about grilling and cooking lobster tails, you can check out some great e-books online. They are easy to read and informative. One of these books has a section on grilling lobster tails and several other topics that are similar to this one.
Last but not least, you will need kitchen scissors and a mandolin knife. You can slice the meat with the help of kitchen scissors by slicing across the grain. You can also slice the meat manually with the help of the mandolin knife. You can then remove the chunks of meat with the help of the kitchen scissors and place them into your marinade.
Before cooking, it’s important that you thaw the lobster meat using the right method. It is best to put the pieces into a pot and then bring it to room temperature. The best way to do so is to place the pieces on plates and let them stand on them until they are completely thawed. Once they are frozen, it’s best to defrost them as quickly as possible in order to prevent overcooking. You may want to defrost them overnight if there is an overnight party at home.
After defrosting, the next step is to grill the lobster meat. Keep in mind that it’s better to use a lower temperature for grilling time. When the meat reaches its desired crispiness, just flip it over and continue grilling. Keep in mind that lobster tails cook fast – usually in just 2 3 minutes.
If there are still some unfilled shells, you can use a fork to poke holes in them before adding them to the pot. Then, you can add all of the ingredients listed above – except for the lobster meat. Cover the pot tightly with a lid and then let it heat up until the meat is cooked through. Uncover a minute later and check for doneness by flipping the lobster over and testing for does it bounce back (no visible protruding claws). Cooking a lobster tail shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes in total; no less.
