    Crab Stuffed Lobster Tails is the ideal dinner for a special occasion. You won’t believe how easy they are to make!

    Crab Stuffed Lobster Tails are the quintessential “special occasion” dish and can easily be made at home. Lump crab meat blended with seasoning stuffed into a buttery lobster tail.

    There are a couple of things to remember so that your baked stuffed lobster tails are every bit as good as restaurant quality. First, try to find unpasteurized crab meat. For a crab imperial you really want a blue crab, not stone or king.

    You will generally find this already picked in the seafood section. There are several types of crab meat: backfin, claw, jumbo and lump. Lump or jumbo work perfectly for this recipe. Back fin and claw are finer and don’t look as impressive, but can still work.

    You want a medium-large tail so the cooking times of the crab imperial and lobster tail are similar. If you are sure you want the mammoth size tail, baste it with butter and cook it several minutes before removing it and topping with crab imperial.

    Lastly, here in Maryland, Old Bay reigns as the kind of seafood seasoning. Owned by a major spice company, you can typically find it in many grocery stores in the spice section.

    If you can’t find it or don’t care for the taste, just substitute fine sea salt. You can also top your Lobster Stuffed Lobster Tail with Clarified Butter or a “white butter” Beurre Blanc Sauce.
