Step by Step Method

Step 1

Prepare butter:In a small bowl, combine garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, butter, oil, lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper.

Step 2

With kitchen shears, cut away the soft shell of the entire underside of each lobster tail, towards tail and about 1 1/2 inches wide, exposing meat. Insert 1 metal skewer lengthwise through meat and out tail end of each.

Step 3

Heat an outdoor grill on medium-high and brush with high-heat cooking oil. Add lobster tails to grill, cut side down, and cover. Cook until shells are bright red, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn and brush meat with butter mixutre, dividing evenly. Cover and cook until lobster meat is opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove skewers and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

This sure makes for an ever so special dinner. We love our lobster here in New England and having it grilled over a charcoal grill, makes them a touch smoky. The flavored butter brought these babies over the top good. LOVED it! Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for Billboard and FYC.

What a treat! These lobster tails were delicious and really easy to grill. Loved the butter basting sauce -- it really added a wonderful flavor. I never knew grilling lobster tails could be so easy -- can't wait to do it again!
