  • Preheat broiler to 450.
  • Using sharp kitchen shears, cut shell from top to tail, leaving tail intact.
  • Carefully lift the entire lobster out of the shell, keeping the tail meat intact. Close shell and rest meat on the closed shell.
  • For each lobster tail, season liberally with kosher salt, white pepper and paprika. Brush with butter.
  • Place on baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  • Broil just until meat turns pink, about 7-10 minutes
