What You Need

  • 2, 4oz Lobster tail

  • ¼ tsp. Garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. Pepper

 How It’s Made:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Cut a single line along the top shell down the center
  3. Lightly peel back the shell from the meat (it will not entirely pull away)
  4. Take a spoon and wedge it between the shell and the meat to separate it
  5. Slowly remove the lobster meat from the shell (it will have a slight tug to it)
  6. Place meat on top of shell on a baking sheet
  7. Melt the butter and mix in the garlic, pepper, thyme, and paprika
  8. Brush along top of the lobster meat
  9. Bake for 6 minutes
  10. Squeeze ½ of lemon wedge over the whole sheet pan, and remove lobster tails
  11. Place back in oven for 10 minutes to finish roasting asparagus
  12. Cook box of couscous according to package directions 
  13. Plate up by using 1 cup quinoa per plate, ½ the bunch of asparagus and 1 lobster tail per person
