To prepare for cooking, split the tail down the back on the shell side using either kitchen shears or a sharp chef's knife.
Remove the vein and rinse with water. Gently lift the meat up over the back. Alternately, split the tail on the shell side almost through to the underside and butterfly open.
Season to taste - try brushing the tail with a mix of lemon juice, melted butter, garlic, salt and pepper or a mix of orange juice concentrate, fresh basil, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper.
