Lobster tails are a good-value way to buy lobster, though if you have access to whole lobster add the claw meat to the recipe as well. Ready cooked, this luxurious meal can be on the table in less than 20 minutes, making it a brilliant Friday night dinner. What better way to start the weekend?



  • dried angel hair pasta 100g
  • lobster tails 2, cooked
  • lemon 1, zested and juiced
  • mascarpone 3 tbsp
  • basil a handful of leaves


  • Step 1

    Remove the lobster meat from the tails by snipping down each side of the underneath and pulling the shell back. Slice it into discs and chop any scruffy bits.

  • Step 2

    Cook the pasta. Put the mascarpone into a bowl with the lemon zest, 1/2 the lemon juice and 3 tbsp of cooking water and the scruffy bits of lobster and season well. Add the pasta and toss everything together. Divide between two bowls. Dress the lobster slices with some lemon juice and lay them on top of the pasta, scatter on some basil.
