Creole Rock Lobster Tails Recipe

Serves/Makes: 8 servings


  • 8 frozen rock lobster tails (about 8 ounces each)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium green peppers, diced
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 4 tomatoes, quartered, peeled
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans tomato puree
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons snipped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
How to cook Creole Rock Lobster Tails:
  • Check the weight of each lobster tail. Place, unthawed, in kettle. Add boiling salted water to cover, allowing 1 teaspoon salt per quart of water. Boil, allowing 3 minutes longer than ounce weight of largest tail; for example, 11 minutes for an 8-ounce tail; therefore entire batch cooks for 11 minutes.
  • Drain; with scissors, split, cut through the undershell of each tail, fingers between top shell and meat. Pull out meat. Cut into big pieces. Save shells.
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan or skillet. Saute green peppers and onions until tender. Add tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, parsley, and seasoning salt. Cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in lobster meat and saute for about 3 minutes more. Fill shells with tomato-lobster mixture and serve hot.
