We live on the coast of Maine and this summer, we got a recreational lobster license . It’s been so much fun! It’s like Christmas when we pull up the traps – you never now what you’ll get. I’ve been preparing lobster many different ways, but have never tried butter-poached. Sound absolutely delicious and can’t wait to try it. I do not like dropping them in the into the steamer live, but I DO like the idea of thanking Buddha for their deliciousness.
Many thanks…

I’m allergic to shellfish(boo hiss) so I can’t partake but I love checking out seafood recipes. I wish I could eat it. I think it’s awesome that your kids are aware and part of the decision how to cook it. I’m a carnivore but also an animal lover so I love the way you handled it.

Passing this on to my sis in law, they are in Nova Scotia where lobster is plentiful.

More like 6 or 7 I’d say and because of the struggle to get the meat out on your too-short cooking time, it looked like hell. Still, it tasted great.

We thoroughly loved every last morsel. I even dunked my roasted asparagus in the extra butter sauce in the bowl. The tomatoes and basil added such a freshness to the sweet succulent meat! Thanks for the detailed directions. First time cooking lobster and we did 3 whole in 2 sticks of butter and 2 cloves garlic! Again fantastic directions and recipe!!!

Added 2 Tbsp of chopped shallot, red and green bell pepper, half a jalapeno and a tbsp of chopped fresh basil. First time making lobster….and first time EATING it too! LOL Veteran lobster eaters raved. I used frozen tails. No muss or fuss. Enjoy!

Unfortunately, I rarely have access to whole live lobster these days but did pick up about a dozen or more 6 oz lobster tails @ 6.99 lb at my local Publix recently.

I passed on the already thawed tails in the case and bought them still frozen so I could defrost them in the refrigerator, wash well and then carefully broil with garlic butter. I’ve found the quality has been decent and the finished tails tasty and fairly tender (I watch the tails like a hawk and cook until just done).

I’m going to try your recipe today but found your instructions for just tails a bit incomplete as to whether to par boil similar to the instructions for a live lobster. So, this is how I’ve decided to treat the tails: I’ll wash them well in cold water to remove any frost or debris; immediately drop them into a large amount of vigorously boiling salted water, cover and turn the fire off; let them sit for 3-4 minutes; then drain and plunge into ice water before proceeding with your recipe sans the tomatoes that really wouldn’t be good this time of year. Of course I’ll crush the shells up and add them to my bag of other such shells already in my freezer for a lobster stock.

I don’t know if you’ll respond to this but even if you do I’m certain it won’t be in time. I’ll let you’ll know later how it turns out.

Thank you so much for the recipe and I think I’ll browse through your blog later.

Lobster where I live is now about $3.99 a pound. I had lobster poached in butter in a restaurant for the first time a week ago. I loved it, and wondered how to do it. Thank you so much!
I will probably make this for Thanksgiving. We have lobster on Thanksgiving as we are more thankful for that than turkey. I do a turkey with all the trimmings on Sunday following Thanksgiving.

All I had were two small lobster tails (6 oz. meat total), so I adapted it a bit. Great idea to boil a bit of water and then whisk in the butter ounce by ounce. I ended up using three tbs of butter, which was more than enough. I had an ear of roasted corn on hand, so I cut the kernels off and added those. I served it over whole wheat spaghetti, which was robust enough to stand up to the sauce. Delicious and plenty for two. Thank you!
