This is a delicious grilled lobster tail recipe I found online. Enjoy!
- Lobster tail(s)
- Skewer(s) – one per lobster tail
- 1/4 stick of butter per lobster tail
- 1 clove of garlic per tail
- 1 tsp of lemon juice per tail
- salt (to taste)
- pepper (to taste)
Light your grill, you want to cook the tails over indirect heat.Then make the garlic lemon butter.Melt the butter, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon together. Using a pair of kitchen shears, cut a slit down the back of the lobster tail all the way to the tail fan. Flip over the lobster tail so that it is on its back. Making sure that the lobster is flat, insert a skewer right underneath the tail fan. Then push it through the center of the meat to the other end. Place the tails cut side down on the grill right on the edge of the heat zones. Right between the hot and cool sides of the grill. Cook for 7-8 minutes and then flip the tails. Move them over a bit just until they are not directly over the coals. Cook with the lid closed. Next baste the tails with the garlic lemon butter. Make sure to get a lot of the butter into the sliced portion of the shell. Cook for another 3-5 minutes. Cook with the lid close. When the meat is opaque, it is done. Remove from the grill. Baste one more time with the butter and cover with aluminum foil. Let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
