To prepare sauce, combine mustard and water in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Stir in soy sauce, plum sauce, sherry, and ginger; set aside.
To prepare lobster, make a lengthwise cut through the top of each lobster shell using kitchen shears, cutting to, but not through, lobster meat; press shell open. Place the lobster tails, cut sides up, in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Combine the oils and pepper, and spoon over the lobster meat.
Bake at 425° for 13 minutes or until the lobster meat turns opaque. Serve lobster with sauce, and garnish with onions, if desired.
For the last 6 years, I have made this for my husband for Valentine's Day in lieu of dining out, fighting for reservations and spending too much. It's become something of a tradition and we look forward to an evening alone every year. Don't change a THING about this recipe- everyone is always surprised when I mention roasting the tails, but the oil keeps them moist and tender (Except maybe doubling the sauce recipe- I do since we like it so much, plus you can reuse the leftovers). I highly recommend the side of Snow Peas and Cherry Tomatoes and a good white wine. I have made the greens with Tarragon Vinaigrette and Pine Nuts as well and find it a perfect light romantic meal! Next year I'll add the artichoke red pepper dip.
Made this for Valentine's Day dinner along with steak and mashed potatoes and it was delicious! I substituted strawberry jelly (melted in the microwave for a few seconds) for the plum sauce and still turned out well.
I made this recipe last night and, like many (all?) of the other reviewers, I loved it! I made it EXACTLY like the recipe and it tasted amazing and, as an added bonus, it was very easy to make. I do not think anything needs to be changed and it was perfect when made as written. If you haven't made it: Make it- you'll be glad you did.
This was also my first try @ Lobster Tails. What an EASY & EXCELLENT recipe!! I followed recipe exactly but did add a little Wasbi as others suggested. We thought the sauce was great w/ lobster tails, BUT did feel a little too much soy sauce for our tastes. I will cut back on it next time. If you like a little spicier like us, I plan to also use Thai Chili Sauce in place of Plum Sauce. It is both sweet & spicy. Valentine & Anniversary Dinner so also had small Rib Eye w/ Arugula Salad & Baked Potato. FABULOUS meal and SO EASY!!!!
