A meal of lobster tails might seem like a gourmet feast to your guests, but they are actually quite easy to prepare. To cook 4 lobster tails, bring 6-8 cups of salted water to a boil in a large pan. Leave the lobster tail in the shell. Drop in the boiling water and reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 1 minute per ounce of tail meat (10 minutes for 4 tails weighing 10 oz. each). Once the lobster is cooked, crack the shell open with kitchen shears to make it easier to eat. Serve with butter and lemon.
Lobster is a nutritious source of zinc, and 3.5 ounces of cooked meat supplies about 3.5 milligrams toward the 8 milligrams women require daily and the 11 milligrams men should get. Zinc plays a role in wound healing and blood clotting, and also supports your immunity.
