For the Lobster:

  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan.

  2. Add the garlic, paprika, pepper and salt to the butter.

  3. Place in a bowl and into the refrigerator for 5 minutes until it begins to solidify but is not solid.

  4. Take the lobster tails and rub the top and underside of each tail with the butter mixture until it is all used up.
