Servings 4 Servings


  • 8 Lobster Tails
  • For Garlic Butter
  • 2 4 oz. unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 0.25 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 juice of one lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


Garlic Butter

  1. Combine butter, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, a pinch of salt and pepper in a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Keep in a cool place until ready to use.
  3. If you do not have a food processor, allow the butter to become very soft, then vigorously mix.

Grilled Lobster

  1. Heat a grill to medium high. Split the lobster tails in half down the center. Slather the flesh with 1 tablespoon of butter.
  2. When the grill is ready, place the lobsters on the grill shell side down. The butter will melt and start to flavor the lobster meat.
  3. After two minutes, flip the lobster over, flesh side down. Be careful, the butter will drip and you will get flare ups.
  4. Allow the lobster flesh to get grill marks, and the shell edges should slightly char, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. When the lobster meat is opaque, slather the flesh side once more with extra butter and place the tails on a platter.
  6. Serve with extra garlic butter on the side and lemon wedges.
