What to serve with lobster tail?

I have planned an appetizer of mussels in garlic and wine sauce followed by a main course with lobster tail.
This will be my first time cooking lobster tail. I plan on broiling it with some butter. But I'm not sure what to serve with the lobster?

Any ideas would be helpful.

Thank you!

  1. It's been ages since I've had lobster tail in a restaurant. If memory serves, the most common side was a baked potato, but a rice pilaf would also work. Also, perhaps, some haricots verts?

    1. A small portion of polenta or risotto would be good. If risotto make it pea if polenta, wild mushrooms.

      1. I vote for the classic twice baked.

        1. I'll second the twice baked potato although I still salivate over the lobster risotto that I had a few times at David Paul's in Maui. Have fun.

          1. I'd go for something like a fresh corn pudding and a fresh green herby chopped salad...
