    Help Me Cook These Lobster Tails

    Primal Fuel
    My wife was sweet enough to pick up a a couple of lobster tails for dinner tonight.
    I've only had lobster in a restaurant and so have no idea of the best way of cooking it.

    Online searching reveals that apparently you can cook lobster in just about every imaginable fashion.
    I guess when something is that good, it's hard to screw it up.

    That said, I would love to hear opinions from you guys whether you think I should broil, steam, boil, or bake them.

    They are pretty small if that factors into your advice.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    P.S> I'm going to be cooking them in about an hour so I will be checking back for replies.

    We had steamed lobster tails for Thanksgiving, just steamed in a colander-thingie for five minutes. With lots of ghee. Perfection!

    I'm an old fashioned New England born girl. Throw it in the pot, then let it swim in ghee!

    if they're red, they're already cooked; if you want them warm again, do it gently - perhaps in the esteemed bork's suggestion of ghee or garlic butter.

    also being a proud new england girl, i must point out the value of lobster rolls (done primally of course!)... lightly shred your lobster, mix with homemade mayo, MAAAAAAYBE at celery or garlic (this is up to preference/debate), wrap up forkfuls in lettuce, devour.

    oh god. i want some lobster.

    My lobster eating experience extends not only from my grandparents who would get it fresh off the truck from their local fish monger in NH, but also Newarks. Newarks you could actually watch the boats go out on the water and bring back the haul. Come to think of it, my grandparents would have made killer paleo-ites! Sure they ate oatmeal on occasion, but I don't really remember eating a ton of bread (okay, except for pb&j and tuna fish sandwiches, but really it was limited to once a day, and we mainly got bread to feed the duck and her babies that swam by every morning)

    Or maybe it wasn't called Newarks. It started with an N and sat right on the water.
    Wait. Found it.
