Steps

  • 1

    Prepare an ice water bath in a large bowl or pot.

    • 4 Pound lobster tails, fresh or thawed

    Drain the lobster tails thoroughly, then cut out the soft "belly shell" with kitchen shears or clean pair of tin snips. Remove the tail meat from the shells and set the shells aside. Remove the intestinal tract from the top of each piece of tail meat. Chop the meat into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a medium bowl with the crabmeat. Mix well to combine, then set aside.

    Make the stuffing: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until soft and translucent. Stir in the parsley, tarragon, if using, Old Bay, and lemon juice. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the stuffing cool.
