How To Steam Lobster Tails
Choose a large pot with a tight-fitting lid that is large enough to fit the lobster tails with enough room for the steam to circulate around them. Place a steamer basket or an upturned colander in the pot, and pour in cold water to a depth of about 2 inches. Cover and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling, quickly add the lobster tails to the pot and cover. Steam the lobster tails, for approximately one minute per ounce. For example 10 minutes for 10 ounce tails. Remove from pot and cool slightly prior to serving. Serve with drawn butter and your favorite seasonings.
