Recipe Ingredients for Butter poached lobster tail with citrus butter sauce

9 ounce lobster tail
2 ounces sorrel
4 ounces dry white wine
2 ounces minced shallots
4 ounces heavy cream
12 ounces butter, large diced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon lime juice

Recipe Directions for Butter poached lobster tail with citrus butter sauce

In a saute pan, add 3 pounds melted butter and on a low medium flame heat the split tails flesh side down until flesh cooks enough to become firm. Turn tails over so that the shell side is down to finish cooking (remember not to cook too high of a heat so that milk solids in the butter evaporates too quickly-otherwise you "fry" the lobster tail rather than poaching it).In a saute pan reduce white wine and shallots until nearly dry. Add heavy cream and reduce to a thick consistency. Slowly add butter whisking continuously on medium heat. Do not bring to a boil. Add juices and season with salt and pepper. Strain.
