  2. Place, meat side up, on a foil-lined baking pan.

  3. Lightly brush each tail with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

  4. Broil about 4 inches from heat for about 4 to 6 minutes, or until tails curl.

  5. Remove from the oven and let cool. Cover and chill for an hour or two.

Mimosa Dressing:
