Boiled Lobster Tails

When you get a piece of truly spectacular cookware, it only makes sense that you break it in with truly spectacular food. So what better way to use my new Le Creuset Dutch oven than to cook lobster? You can definitely try this recipe with macaroni and cheese recipe as both complements each other taste.

After reading the instructions on how to properly use my new pot about fifty times and reading about how to boil lobster about twenty times, our two lobster tails were cooking away and I was squealing with glee.

Boiled Lobster Tails

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add some salt. Add the lobsters/lobster tails.
When the water returns to a boil, set a timer. For one pound of lobster, cook it for about 8 minutes. Add 3-4 minutes for each additional pound. You can also use a meat thermometer to check doneness; it will be done at 140 degrees.
Drain the lobster, and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.


Because we had to postpone our lobster cooking, we had frozen our lobsters in a sealed freezer bag the day we bought them and transferred them to the refrigerator the day before cooking so that they could slowly thaw out.
While the lobster was boiling I melted some ghee to use for dipping. You could clarify your own butter, but since I had a jar of ghee I thought I’d save myself the work.
