New year’s Eve menu: Lobster tails

I am preparing our little New Year’s Eve party. On the menu: lobster tails.
We stay quietly at home. I take advantage of these last moments as a family of 3 to spend time with Giulia.
Giulia is born with one month in advance. So I spent the whole month of December telling myself that I could give birth at any moment. Finally it seems that this baby will be a 2022 baby! What better way to start this new year?
It’s not yet midnight in France, so I’m going to respect the tradition and wait for midnight to pass to wish you a wonderful year.
In the meantime, to end the year well, here is the recipe for the lobster tails.
