Next, flip the tail over and press down onto the ribs to crack each one. Then, flip it over again and slip the meat out to prop over the shell. The meat will still be attached to the fins.

In a small bowl, mix together melted light butter, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, Old Bay seasoning and black pepper. Brush half of the butter mixture over both sides of the tail meat.
