Frozen Lobster Tails
Learn how to buy, cook and eat frozen lobster tails
When you think of a lobster tail, you probably think that it comes from a lobster with claws. Most likely, the lobster tails that you see in the stores are from rock or spiny lobsters. Frozen lobster tails can also be of the Maine or Canadian variety but those are much more expensive.
Frozen lobster tails have a tougher texture than that of a tail from a live lobster. But frozen lobster tails are far more convenient and because your not paying for the whole lobster, you get more meat for your money. Frozen lobster tails are sold according to their weight and can range from 1 oz all the way to 30 oz's. Frozen lobster tails should be thawed overnight in the fridge before cooking.
