Sous Vide Butter-Tarragon Lobster Tails

Anova Culinary

Lobster tail dipped in butter is delicious. Lobster tail poached in butter and fresh tarragon — a perfect match for lobster — with the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker is even better. We recommend serving it with the melted tarragon-butter from the bag and lemon wedges.
