1. Types of Lobster Tail

Most people don't have easy access to fresh local lobster tails, but buying frozen allows you to choose from a greater variety anyway. Choose according to your budget and what's available where you are as well as the method you're using to cook. Warm water lobster tails tend to be less expensive but have a more bland taste. They often have spines instead of claws. Cold water lobsters such as those from Maine and Canada are the more choice varieties which taste wonderful simply dipped in melted butter. If you happen to be on the Maine coast or at another prime lobster location, you can visit the docks and buy your dinner live and ready to cook.
