Ingredients

2 Lobster tails, split along the center top
2 tsp butter, melted
15 buttery round crackers, crushed
1/2 cup jumbo lump crabmeat
1/4 cup clarified butter
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 tsp seafood seasoning
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp lemon zest
1tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp freshly ground white pepper, or to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Pull the edges of the split lobster shells apart and gently lift the tail meat to rest above the shells. Place the prepared lobster tails on a baking sheet.

Brush each portion of tail meat with 1 teaspoon melted butter.

Lightly mix the crushed crackers, crabmeat, 1/4 cup of clarified butter, parsley, seafood seasoning, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and white pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined

Spoon half the stuffing onto each lobster tail; press lightly to slightly shape the stuffing so it doesn't fall off.

Bake the lobster tails in the preheated oven until the meat is opaque and the stuffing is golden brown on top, 10 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lobster tail should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C).
