I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Grilled Lobster Tails
...in your mind.

Grilled Lobster Tails

Serves 4 - There’s this big mystique about lobster being hard to cook. Frankly it’s no more difficult than a grilled peanut butter and jelly - it’s just more expensive. Try it and see.

Ingredients

  • 4 lobster tails
  • 1/4 cup Finlandia butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Juice of 1 whole lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/3 cup scallions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients except tails in small pot over low heat until melted
  2. Using kitchen shears or really good scissors - cut right up the middle of the shell to towards the tail, but don’t cut through the tail
  3. Using the cut as your guide, take a good knife and cut all the way down through the meat but do not cut through the bottom shell
  4. Pull back the sides of the shell to expose the meat and brush well with the butter mixture
  5. Heat grill to medium high and grill meat-side down for approximately 5-6 minutes, then turn and cook another 3-4 minutes or until done
  6. Serve with extra butter sauce
