Easy Lobster Tails in Foil

Lobster tails
Salt
Pepper
Paprika
Lemon or lime juice
Butter

Thaw the lobster tails. Cut away the membrane with scissors. Loosen meat from shell with fingers. Place each tail on a piece of foil (large enough to wrap generously). Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, lemon or lime juice and dot with butter. Fold foil over, sealing the ends so the juice will stay inside.

Place foil wrapped tails on a cookie sheet and bake in a 450 degree oven. 4-8 oz. tails for 25 minutes 9-12 oz. tails for 30 minutes 13-16 oz. tails for 35 minutes When done, fold back foil and brown under the broiler for 1 minute.

Remove tails to a hot platter, pour juice from foil over tails and serve with lots of hot butter on the side.
