Grilled Lobster Tails


It's Fish Friday! Who doesn't love a grilled lobster tail? They are a delightful treat and you don't need to spend a fortune, or go to a steak and seafood house. It's an easy, "fancy" meal to make at home for a date night or celebration!  I bought my lobster tails at Whole Foods for $11.99 per tail.  Keep an eye on them because I often see them at 2 for $12 - What a steal!  The flesh of the lobster tails can get dry so make sure to use lots of butter or herb oil for basting. 



ingredients

2 lobsters tails (about 6-8 ounces) 
4 tablespoons of butter (melted) or 3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 Tablespoon of fresh parsley, finely chopped (chive is great, too! ) 
Kosher Salt and fresh ground pepper 


preparation

Preheat your grill to high. 

Prep the lobsters by butterflying the lobster tails before grilling. I use my kitchens shears to make a lengthwise cut through the hard shell.  I like to call this cutting down from the spine to the tail.  Next, using a knife, cut the tail meat in half slicing through the meat.
Place the lobster 'shell side up', and sear the meat. After 3 minutes, turn it upside down and begin to baste them with herb butter or oil. Grill until done for 5-8 minutes depending on the size of the tail. Serve with some grilled turf or just eat alone with some drawn herb butter/oil. Enjoy!
