Every New Year’s Eve, I end up cooking a couple lobster tails for dinner. It’s the only time of the year where I like to splurge a little bit. The grocery stores usually have every kind of seafood you can imagine on sale, and lobster is one of them. The tails were 18.99 a pound so I got about a pound and a 1/2 of lobster for around 25.00. Any type of lobster dish you find at the restaurants is well over $50.00. That was a pretty good deal. These were huge tails too. To cook lobster tails, I usually just boil the tails in water until the tails turn red and the lobster meat is cooked through. It will be white. They come frozen in our grocery stores (I live in North Dakota) and it sure beats seeing a lobster get killed in boiling water.
This year I made lobster rolls. I forget what I made last year, I think I just boiled the tails and dipped them in butter. These were probably just as good as the lobster rolls served at the Smack Shack in Minneapolis. Those were so good. They used Texas toast instead of hot dog buns. If only I could eat lobster once a month. It is really my favorite food to eat. Any kind of seafood is my favorite! You MUST brown the buns too, makes a HUGE difference.
