Lobster Tails Turkish Style (Türk Stili Istakoz)




Similar to other seafood, lobsters also need extra attention as to how much they are cooked. When they are cooked too long, the lobster meat has a tendency to be rubbery and tasteless.

The seasoning for these lobsters is Turkish/Mediterranean style, but you may alter it anyway you desire.



4 lobster tails (any size)
1 tbsp olive oil
½ lemon
¼ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt

Wash the lobster tails. Using a sharp knife cut the lobster tails lengthwise from the middle. Cut out the top portion of the shell with kitchen shears or with a knife so that the flesh of the lobster meat is exposed. Be careful not to leave tiny pieces of the shell on the meat.

Sprinkle the lobster meat with salt and paprika. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Broil for about 7-8 minutes. Serve with potatoes or rice and vegetables.
