how long do you steam lobster tails
Lobster tails are usually steamed 8 to 10 minutes. Place 1-2 inches of water in a large pot, bring to a boil, add a dash of salt, and put a steamer insert in. Add your lobster tails on the rack, cover, and steam 8-10 minutes depending on the size.
To steam lobster tails you will cook them 1 and a half minutes per ounce. You should run cold water over them after you remove them from the heat to stop the cooking process.
A typical 6-ounce lobster tail should be cooked at a full rolling boil for five to seven minutes. A 1-pound lobster tail should be cooked for at least 10 minutes.
