Marinate Lobster Tails
Although lobster is often boiled in the shell or par-boiled then grilled, it doesn't have to be. Lobster tails can be marinated before cooking to add flavor and increase tenderness. A wide variety of spices and flavors can be added to a lobster marinade. However, if you like your lobster with a squeeze of lemon, wait until after it's cooked, as the acid in lemon juice will denature the lobster meat.
1- Remove and discard the shells from the lobster tails. Cut each lobster tail in half lengthwise and remove and discard the intestines.
2- Combine the olive oil, minced garlic, chopped basil, chili paste, sea salt and ground pepper in the large freezer bag.
3- Add the halved lobster tails to the freezer bag with the marinade. Seal the bag and shake, making sure each lobster tail is thoroughly coated.
4- Put the lobster tails in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.
After marinating, the lobster tails can be sauteed or grilled.
Lobster shells can be refrigerated and used to make a stock.
Never eat lobster raw. Cook the tails until white and opaque
