How To Sous Vide Lobster Tails

When cooking sometimes the easiest recipes can turn out the best. For this recipe the focus is on using a sous vide precision cooker to cook the lobster meat. This method produces a perfect internal temperature with moist and sweet tasting meat. If you are not familiar with the sous vide technique here is a quick definition: Sous vide, which means “under vacuum” in French, refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. This technique produces results that are impossible to achieve through any other cooking method. Now sit back, grab a glass of your favorite Chardonnay, and enjoy this post for How To Sous Vide Lobster Tails.

Start with a 1-pound pack of shucked lobster tails from LobsterAnywhere.com, 2 Tbsp of unsalted butter, and a few sprigs of fresh tarragon.
