Steamed Lobster Tails

I enjoy cooking, but one of the things I’ve never done before is prepare lobster tails.  I found out that it’s not that difficult, and it tastes delicious.  J bought a few wild lobster tails from Costco earlier in the day, and I was tasked with preparing them. 
The first step was to put water, garlic salt and chicken stock in a deep pan (J doesn’t usually use chicken broth but this was some homemade awesomeness).  I brought it to a boil and then set it to simmer.  I placed a basket on top and placed a lobster tail on it, then covered it.  After letting it stay in there for 8 minutes, I took it out.  J let me know that they weren’t done yet.  To assure proper doneness, you have to check that the lobster tail meat is opaque. 

I re-steamed it for four extra minutes, checked it again, and then it was ready for eating!  It was very tasty.  I added some pictures of the entire process to the site.
