  1. step

    Make garlic-herb butter

    • In small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.
    • Add thyme, rosemary, garlic and red pepper flakes and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally.
    • Remove from heat and season with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Let stand while you prepare lobster.

  2. step

    Prep lobster tails

    • Working with 1 lobster tail at a time, hold it with shell in palm of your hand with tail fin facing away from you.
    • Starting at end closest to you, use kitchen shears to cut along both sides of translucent membrane, where legs meet shell, all the way to tail fin, trying not to cut into flesh.
    • Lift up membrane and cut where it attaches to tail fin, exposing tail meat.
    • Starting at end closest to you and moving toward tail fin, slide thumb or index finger between shell and flesh to dislodge tail meat. Leave meat in shell.

  3. step

    Roast lobster tails

    • Place lobster tails flesh side up in Zones 1 and 2 of Brava metal tray. Slide metal tray into bottom shelf.
    • Select “Roasted Lobster Tails” on your Brava touchscreen and follow instructions.

  4. step

    Finish & serve

    • When your food is done, let cool on tray for 2 minutes. Transfer lobsters to cutting board.
    • Remove tail meat from shells.
    • Slice tail meat in half lengthwise and arrange on serving platter or individual plates.
    • Strain melted butter, discarding herbs and garlic. Pour butter over lobster meat. Sprinkle with parsley and flaky sea salt. Serve with lemon wedges.
