Lobster Tail Review

The tails were served with mashed potatoes and a corn salad with a shrimp ceviche style soup with avocado to start. The smaller cold water lobster tails (~12-16 oz. instead of the nearly 3 lb. tails) were seasoned with salt and pepper, then baked in the oven. The simple preparation allowed the lobster flavor to come through. We had butter on the table but not many people used it.

The meat was tender and pulled out of the tail carapace easily. This made for large chunks of perfectly cooked lobster meat. The meat wasn't tough or chewy or rubbery flavored which can happen when overcooked. I would say Costco's lobster tail are worth it considering the price. While whole lobster will be cheaper, the front half of the lobster has more shell which accounts for more of the mass which equals less meat per pound.
