  • 8 Orange Slices
  • 4 (5-ounce) Lobster Tails
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup Chopped fennel fronds
  • 3/4 cup dry Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt



Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2. Cut 4 (15 x 24-inch) pieces of parchment paper. Fold in half crosswise. Draw a large heart half on each piece, with the fold of the paper being the center of the heart. Cut out the heart, and open. Layer 2 orange slices, 1 lobster tail, 1 1/2 teaspoons butter, and 1 tablespoon fennel fronds near the fold of each piece of parchment. Spoon 3 tablespoons Champagne over each serving. Starting at the top of the heart, fold edges of parchment, sealing edges with narrow folds. Twist the end tip to secure tightly. Place packets on a baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand for 5 minutes. Carefully open packets. Remove meat from lobster tails; coarsely chop. Return meat to lobster tails shell; place on plate. Drizzle 1 packet of juices over serving; repeat with remaining 3 lobster tails and 3 packets. Sprinkle evenly with salt.
