Broiled Lobster Tails Recipe
with Lime-Dill Butter Sauce

This broiled lobster tails recipe keeps things simple while adding just enough flavor to your lobster without overpowering the sweet delicate meat that we all love.

Remember when broiling lobster tails, that the times listed on any recipe should be a guideline and not the exact time. The thickness of the lobster and how you prepare the lobster for cooking with affect the cooking time.

Broiled tails cook the best when they have been butterflied. If you are not sure how to butterfly a tail, here's how it is done.


  • 4 Lobster Tails (6 to 8 oz each)
  • 4 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dill, fresh
  • 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon White Pepper


  1. In a small pan, combine butter, olive oil, lime juice, dill and paprika
  2. Melt and stir well to blend all ingredients together
  3. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon of butter mixture over each lobster tail
  4. Keep the remaining butter mixture warm
  5. Add about a 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan
  6. Place Lobster tails on a broiler pan meat side up, place the broiling pan so it is about 8 to 9 inches away from the broiler element
  7. Broil for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the lobster meat is opaque.
  8. Remove lobster tails, place them on a plate and pour the remaining butter mixture over each tail
  9. Serve Immediately
