  • 4 frozen lobster tails (thawed)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • A few pieces of greens, such as romaine lettuce, spring mix, etc.
  • 4 radishes (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup orange juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Split each tail lengthwise and rinse with cold water.

  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

  1. Combine honey, orange juice concentrate, and champagne vinegar in a medium saucepan. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until slightly reduced. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Arrange lobster tails on a plate with a few greens, sliced radish, or other salad vegetables. Drizzle a little of the mimosa dressing near the lobster.

Glass Bakeware Warning

Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
