How long do you steam lobster tails?

Answer

The time it takes to steam a lobster tail depends on the weight of the lobster. A 2-ounce tail takes 10 minutes, a 4-ounce tail takes 12 minutes, a 6-ounce tail takes 15 minutes, an 8-ounce tail takes 20 minutes, and a 12-ounce tail takes 25 minutes. Anything heavier than 14 ounces generally takes more than 30 minutes to steam.

The best way to see if a lobster tail is finished steaming is if the meat is firm to the touch and white. One of the best ways to steam a lobster tail is to place a bamboo steaming tray over a pot of boiling water and observe it while it cooks.

I think I would put them on wire rack and re-steam them over a pot of boiling water. Lobster tails sound so good! Don't microwave it or it might end up rubbery. Don't over cook!
