    Got a 2 lb Maine frozen lobster tail as a gift.

    Have cooked smaller tails, no problem, both Broiler or Charcoal grill.

    Any suggestions? Method or time?
    ONLY IF YOU HAVE DONE IT !!!!

    THX,

    Steam it. (for a large tail like that, start with 15 - 20 minutes, then check for doneness.) Make sure you defrost it enough to stick a chopstick down the middle of the tail during the steaming process to prevent curling while you cook it.

    Defrost, split, broil with plenty of butter.
    Grilling usually results in tougher meat but is a nice occasional change for the taste.
    Jasper White has a nice prep that involves bourbon and your oven.

    I got something similar one year - mine was a gift certificate for lobstergram.com . I chose 4 Maine tails, and they were really tasty. (they weren't huge, so no cooking tips to share here)

    I prefer broiling with butter.
