>>Someone mentioned doing frozen tails.....

very interesting video on the grilling. I am personally much more of a purist when it comes to seafood., especially the high dollar stuff like lobster and conch - if one needs that much dressing up ,,,,,

for frozen tails, I do them broiled - and perhaps a bit off the wall from convention.

first - thaw them thoroughly. gettting larger tail cooked thru evenly is sufficiently tricky without having to deal with half frozen stuff.

next, I use kitchen shears to completely remove the belly of the tail - snip down each side, then across the tail end, remove the undershell.

gentle pry the whole tail out of the shell.
salt/pepper/lemon or lime juice/soak in clam juice/butter/etc/ect - ie season as you like - there's a few zillions ways.....

crank up the broiler - put the tail back in the shell - meat side up - I use a cooling rack - insert the tail 'fins' into a slot to pin the tail flat.

the 'no undershell' makes for really easy eating, especially as the tail meat has be "pre-extracted" - so nothing going flying across the room when the 'stuck' part breaks free....

If you need that much "dressing up" what? You might as well be taking the meat out of the shell using kitchen shears and using "salt/pepper/lemon or lime juice/soak in clam juice/butter/etc/ect - ie season as you like - there's a few zillions ways....." to cook it?

I'm sure you know what you mean, but I'm completely lost on the above.

That's OK, dc. You lost me on how your way was the purist's way. Unless you meant you were opposed to using a grill in any way.
