  • 2 3 oz lobster tails
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, minced
  • 2 Tbs clarified butter, divided


  • Turn oven on broil.
  • Spray a cast-iron skillet with cooking spray, set aside.
  • With kitchen scissors, cut along the center of the lobster tail’s back, stopping at the base of the tail. Moving from left to right, carefully pull the meat out from the shell. Place the meat on top of the lobster tail, ensuring it is still attached to the tail.
  • Place lobster tails in the prepared cast-iron skillet. Sprinkle the meat with minced garlic and dill. Drizzle tails with 1 Tbs of clarified butter and set halved lemons around the tails.
  • Place the skillet on the middle rack under the broiler and cook for about 4 minutes. Remove the lobster and drizzle with remaining clarified butter. Return the skillet to the oven and broil for an additional 5 minutes. The lobster is finished cooking when it is white and no longer translucent.
  • Drizzle meat with the juice from the roasted lemons. Serve with roasted potatoes and greens.
