Keep lobster tails frozen until you are ready to use them.
Shelf Life: 6 months (or possibly longer) in the freezer.
American lobster tails can be grilled, steamed, baked or broiled. Because an overcooked lobster tail is a tough lobster tail, remove them from the heat when just barely underdone. They will continue to cook the rest of the way through carry-over cooking.
Though the classic accompaniment to Maine lobster tails is simply melted or drawn butter, they can also be paired with flavors like cream, garlic, basil, chervil, tarragon, semi-dry white wine, cayenne pepper, citrus (lemon, orange, or yuzu juice) or, for the truly adventurous, vanilla beans.
