    Broiled Lobster Tails with Caramelized Onion Pineapple Salsa

    When it comes to quick and easy dinner recipes, lobster is not likely the first thing ot come to mind. However, this romantic dinner for two only takes about 15 minutes to make. Nearly every grocery store sells frozen Chilean lobster tails, which makes planning your meal easy, and a pineapple, caramelized onion and habanero salsa adds a sweet-hot touch.

    For the Lobster
    frozen lobster tails, 7 to 8 ounces each
    olive oil or butter
    For the Salsa
    Olive Oil
    large onion, about 2 ounces, thinly sliced
    chopped fresh pineapple
    habanero chile, minced
    kosher salt
    Heat the broiler in your oven. Using a pair of poultry shears, cut the back of each lobster tail lengthwise. Loosen the meat, but leave it inside the shell. Add a tablespoon of olive oil or butter inside the lobster tail. Place the lobster tails in a baking pan, and place under the broiler. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes.
    While the lobster tails are broiling, prepare the salsa. In a 9-inch skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the sliced onions, and cook, stirring until they are well browned, about 3 minutes. Add the pineapple and habanero, and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Remove from the heat, and set aside until the lobster tails are cooked.
    Once the lobster tails are cooked, allow them to cool slightly. Using a fork, pull the lobster meat up out of the cut shell. Pile the caramelized salsa over the top. Serve immediately.
