Lobster Roll Tacos

Yum


"I'm already looking forward to having these again" was my husband's response after he finished his lobster roll tacos. These magnificent tacos have a taste can only be magnified by the seasoned butter sauce that is drizzled on top, sprinkled with fresh cilantro. Superior taste that is fresh and flavorful!

Ingredients:

- 2, 5 oz. lobster tails
- 1 tsp. white vinegar
- 4 Tbs. butter
- 1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
- 1 tsp. lime zest
- juice from 1/2 of a lime
- 1 Tbs minced shallotss
- 2 Tbs scallions, chopped
- 2 Tbs fresh cilantro, chopped

In a large sauce pan, add enough water that will cover lobster tails. Add vinegar and heat water over medium-high heat. When water comes to a boil, place lobster tails in pan. Let boil for about 6 to 7 minutes, until shells turn bright red and meat is tender when pierced with a fork. Remove tails and submerge in an ice bath to stop the cooking, for about 5 minutes. Carefully remove meat from tails and cut into bite-size pieces. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat butter and Old Bay seasoning over medium heat. After the butter is melted, add lime zest, juice, and shallots. Cook for 2 minutes or until shallots are tender. Add lobster to skillet and gently stir until lobster is heated through. Remove lobster with a slotted spoon and place in taco shells. Top with desired amount of butter sauce and sprinkle each lobster taco with scallions and cilantro. Enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
