Grilled Lobster Tails
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
I tried this tonight and it was absolutely the best grilled lobster I've ever tasted. However, it is so good, I recommend two tails per serving unless you are doing surf and turf with several sides. If grilling on an infrared grill, preheat to 350-400°F, put the tails on the grill meat side up but reduce your cooking time to about seven minutes. The internal temperature of my cooked lobster was perfect at 135°F. Since my grocery a sale (2 tail pkg for $5), I was able to buy two packages. What a treat!
My husband loved it! So easy to make. Will definitely make again.
I used butter instead of olive oil and added two dashes of smoked tobasco sauce to the marinade. Then I placed a sprig of fresh rosemary down the center of each lobster tail as it cooked on the grill. Pretty amazing! I don't think I'll be eating lobster any other way.
Grilled Lobster Tails so delicious, such an easy recipe. My Family on Christmas Day 2019 were blown away by the presentation
I grew up in Maine. I'd only ever eaten lobster boiled, in a sandwich or in a stew. I've made this recipe here in Hawaii with Maine lobsters grown in Kona three times in the last two months. Simply delicious. And although I enjoy the challenge of getting every bit of lobster meat from even the tiniest legs and fins of a boiled lobster, I'm having second thoughts. After this recipe, I may never eat them boiled again. HOWEVER, I find the chore of loosening the tail meat and then slipping it out to the top of the shell while still attached is a real challenge. I notice other recipes suggest that the cut is made on the bottom of the tail. I'll try that the next time.
I have only made lobster one way which is in the oven. So I thought it would be interesting to try something new. When I read the recipe the ingredients were simple but I was unsure how it would taste. To my surprise it was fantastic, grilling it was incrediblely easy. Now I know two ways to make it that are yummy! Great job!
This was great! Nice flavor!
What an outstanding recipe! Although my husband and I cut the recipe back a bit to prepare two lobster tails, we found the recipe easy to follow and thought it was the best tasting lobster we've ever had! We'll definitely make it again!
The only way this recipe could fail to provide a tasty lobster is if directions were not followed or lobster was bad in the first place.
Excellent. Even our learning-challenged cousin who unfortunately has a difficult time with some recipes...was able to accomplish this one on his own. Well done!As for us, we love it. We've made it a half dozen times already. How SassyLacey in the previous one-star comment failed at this, is beyond me. If our cousin who has a learning disability can do it, I am a little shocked at Sassy's failure.Some people just don't have a knack for cooking.
