Frozen lobster tails: meat sticks to shell

justicenow | May 12, 2012 02:18 PM

I have bought newly available frozen cold water lobster tails five times in the in the last 2 months.
They are about 4oz each and probably come from Canada because Maine caught lobsters have bigger tails. I have tried steaming and boiling them. The meat sticks to the shell quite stubbornly.
I tried steaming with some butter in the water, cooking them while still frozen solid and also fully defrosted. Getting live lobster is a once or twice a year event for us, being over 3000 miles west of Maine. Having a convenient and inexpensive option is great. How do I keep the meat from sticking?
