Lobster Tail

  4. Set lobster tails on a baking sheet or in an oven safe dish and bake for 5 – 10 minutes.


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the shrimp to the skillet and sprinkle with spices (salt, cajun, garlic and parsley).

  3. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through.

  4. Remove shrimp to a plate and set aside.
