The bake time for a lobster tail depends on how big it is. Here’s how long to bake lobster tails in a 350-degree oven:
- 6-7 ounces: 10 to 12 minutes
- 8-10 ounces: 12 to 15 minutes
- 16-20 ounces: 15 to 18 minutes
- 20-24 ounces: 18 to 20 minutes
When most people think of cooking lobster tails, they think of steaming or grilling, but baking lobster is actually a great way to cook them while preserving all of that amazing lobster flavor. Just keep an eye on your tails to make sure they don’t overcook: When the meat is opaque and the inside registers 140 degrees on a meat thermometer, they’re done.
