Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

  • 2 lobster tails, split along the center top
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 15 buttery round crackers, crushed
  • ½ cup jumbo lump crabmeat
  • ¼ cup clarified butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper, or to taste

Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Step 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Step 2Pull the edges of the split lobster shells apart and gently lift the tail meat to rest above the shells. Place the prepared lobster tails on a baking sheet.
  • Step 3Brush each portion of tail meat with 1 teaspoon melted butter.
  • Step 4Lightly mix the crushed crackers, crabmeat, 1/4 cup of clarified butter, parsley, seafood seasoning, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and white pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  • Step 5Spoon half the stuffing onto each lobster tail; press lightly to slightly shape the stuffing so it doesn’t fall off.
  • Step 6Bake the lobster tails in the preheated oven until the meat is opaque and the stuffing is golden brown on top, 10 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lobster tail should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C).
