Heart healthy lobster for Valentine's Day!

Keep your Valentine's heart healthy with this recipe that takes minutes to make but will make you look like a pro!
Whole Foods has sustainably-caught lobster tails on sale right now @ 2 for $16!
How to season a lobster tail
1. Dress the lobster with olive oil (more heart healthy than butter)
2. Squeeze one half lemon on each lobster tail
3. Sprinkle a little salt on each tail
4. Sprinkle a little paprika on each lobster tail
5. Sprinkle a tiny bit of garlic salt on each lobster tail
You really don't have to measure the above just take the spices and sprinkle them with your fingers lightly dusting and evenly distributing the spices. You can also just go with olive oil and lemon and your lobster will taste wonderful
For your side...
Roasted Asparagus
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Wash asparagus and pat dry with a towel (you don't want your asparagus to steam so you want to make sure they aren't wet) Cut the end of the asparagus off and discard (this part is too chewy).
Dress your asparagus with grape seed oil, or other high heat oil that you enjoy .
Sprinkle the asparagus with sea salt and black pepper
Place your asparagus on a cookie sheet for about 15 minutes until it's a little browned and still crunchy. You don't want your asparagus to cook to long because it will get soggy.
You can line your cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the asparagus on the cookie sheet for easier clean up.
You can sprinkle a little fresh parmesan cheese to add a little flavor, but it's really not needed because roasting asparagus really brings out the sweet flavor of the vegetable.
