Ingredients

  • 12 ounces lobster meat , 2, six ounce tails
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic , minced, about 1-2 cloves
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon Italian parsley, chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 hotdog buns , split top, buttered and toasted in a pan

Equipment

  • pasta pot to cook lobsters
  • saute pan

Instructions 

  • Boil water and add the lobster tails. Cook until the tails are bright red in color or for about 8 – 10 minutes.
  • Remove the tails from the water using tongs and let the lobster cool. You can even run it under cold water to help it cool off more quickly.
  • Gently crack the shells and remove the meat, cut the meat into bite size pieces.
  • In a sauté pan add the butter, garlic, and lemon zest. Let it simmer over medium / low heat for a few minutes. You do not want the butter to brown so keep a close watch.
  • Next, add the cubed lobster meat, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Toss everything together until the lobster is coated in the butter, lemon zest & juice, garlic and salt.
    I like my lobster meat to be a little crispy on the outside, so I let it cook in the pan for about 3-4 minutes. But since the meat is already cooked this will come together very quickly. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • Butter the sides of your split top hotdog buns and let it brown in a pan. Once toasted on the outside, load in the warm lobster meat.
    Serve with a slice of fresh lemon and enjoy! You can also add some fresh chopped parsley or fresh chopped cilantro for some extra flavor!
