These tails are also great for people who are worried that the smallest tails will look too diminutive or too cumbersome to eat to create that wow factor. On a similar note, unless the recipe specifically calls for extra small or extra large, medium-size tails should be a good choice for pretty much any method of preparing and serving lobster tails. For portion sizing, two tails should be sufficient for most people, but expect guests with a stronger appetite to grab a third tail if it’s available to them.
