Cooking Lobster Tails

No matter what process is used to cook lobster tails, they always seem to curl up. Well, curl no more with this simple tip!

Lobster tails curl naturally when cooked, and that’s okay. However, for some recipes it’s nice to keep the tail straight for looks. To do that, split the tails in half lengthwise. Holding the cut side up, run a skewer through the meat, as close to the upper shell as possible. Cook the tail as directed, then simply remove the skewer when done. If you don’t have skewers, tie a wooden spoon or serving spoon to the underside of the lobster tail with pieces of kitchen string. Then cook the tail as directed.
