What to do with a little bit of lobster

I have five small lobster tails left in the freezer that my husband caught last year ( one advantage of living in Florida). They are really small - what can I do with them for a meal tonight. I don't feel like going out and buying anything extra to add ( shrimp for example and then making a seafood chowder)

So -- what to do with five small tails, a fairly well stocked larder and dinner looming in about 2 hours.

By the way ( for any Floridians/lobstermen reading this) they are not illegal sized ones - they are from slipper lobsters which have no size limitations.

  1. Lobster Francais/Francese.......with Angel Hair pasta.

    1. Split and grilled? Paella? Kebabs? Bisque? Lobster Rolls? Thermidor? Stuffed tails? Cocktail? Deep fried? Po' Boys? Stuffed into Ravioli? Or Potstickers?

      How small is "really small"? 1 oz? 2 oz? 4 oz?

      1. Saw this on a menu online this week: Lobster Scrambled Eggs.

          +1 Lobster omlet. Also Lobster quesadilla.

        2. Lobster Mac and cheese, lobster grilled cheese, or an easy paella with some chicken, sausage, etc. you might have on hand. A lobster roll or lobster salad served in a tomato would be nice.

          1. When I have small amounts of lobster meat left over, I chop them up & serve them over pasta - either just mixed with lemon butter, or with a red sauce, or added to a clam or mixed seafood sauce.
