each tail in half lengthwise with a sharp heavy knife or to butterfly, cut tails down through middle of hard shell with a sharp knife. Cut through flesh but not underside membrane. Hold tail in both hands and open flat, butterfly style. Brush lightly with melted butter or olive oil. Place lobster tails on broiling pan, shell side down.
