Aromatic spice mix:
Place all ingredients in a mortar and gentle crush with the pestle a couple of times until just broken but not too crushed.
For the lobster:
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.
Heat a fry pan over a high heat then add the oil and the 2 tails. Caramelise all over for a couple of minutes until deep orangey red.
Add the spice mix to the pan and place into the pre-heated oven.
Cover with foil.
Roast for 12 minutes until just cooked.
Remove from the oven and rest in a warm place for 4 minutes.
Crack and remove the shell, slice the lobster flesh into large medallions and serve.
Place in the pan with the lobster over a moderate heat and gently toast for 3-5 minutes without any colour until all the wonderful flavours and aromas are released. This should be done immediately before the lobster tails are placed in the pan for roasting.
