  • Grate enough zest from lemon to measure 1/2 tsp. zest; place in small bowl. Cut lemon in half, then squeeze enough juice from 1 lemon half to measure 1 Tbsp. juice. Add lemon juice to zest; mix well. Reserve for later use.
  • Place both lemon halves in Dutch oven. Add water, peppercorns and 1/4 cup dressing; stir. Bring to boil. Add lobster tails; return water to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 to 12 min. or until lobster meat is tender and tails turn red.
  • Meanwhile, add butter, cheese and remaining dressing to reserved lemon zest mixture; mix well.
  • Drain lobster tails. Remove meat from shells; discard shells. Serve lobster meat topped with dressing mixture.

Special Equipment Needed

Food Facts

Most lobster tails are from spiny lobsters (also called rock lobsters) which do not have claws but have tails that are meatier than those of the Maine lobsters.

Serving Suggestion

Balance this special-occasion entrée with smart side dishes. For example, choose a mixed green salad and hot steamed vegetable.


If using frozen lobster tails, thaw them in the refrigerator before cooking them as directed.
