2Remove lobster meat from shells by cutting soft underside of shells with scissors; pull meat out and discard shells. Cut underside of lobster meat lengthwise, but not all the way through, then spread tails out to form a pocket for stuffing. Place in shallow baking pan, cut side up, and season with salt and pepper.

3Cut or tear baguette into 1-inch pieces; place in blender or food processor and pulse to make 2 cups fresh crumbs. Add 2 tablespoons softened butter, minced garlic, and lemon zest; pulse to blend.

4Add parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper; pulse on/off a few times to mix gently. Do not overmix. Spoon 1/4 stuffing mixture into each lobster tail. Drizzle 6 tablespoons melted butter evenly over tops.

5Bake 15 minutes or until lobster meat reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees. Carefully lift lobster tails from pan onto serving plates with a spatula. Serve with lemon wedges and extra melted butter, if desired
