Step 1

Make garlic butter by mixing the butter and garlic together.

Step 2

Line a grill/broiler pan with alfoil.

Step 3

Cut a line down the centre on the top of the crayfish/lobster tail (not the belly side) (scissors are the easiest thing to use to do this job), stopping just before the tail fins.

Step 4

Pull the shell apart leaving it intact and gently pull the lobster meat out, cradling it on top of the now opened shell.

Step 5

Using a sharp knife, made a small slit down the top of the meat and spread it by running your finger through the lobster meat.

Step 6

Fill the crevice with the garlic butter and sprinkle with a little paprika.

Step 7

Grill/broil about 3 to 4 inches from heat for approximately 5 to 6 minutes (it works out about 1 minutes per 30 grams or 1 ounce).
