Lobster Tails on the Grill

I failed to take a picture of the cooked lobster tails, so you are just going to have to trust me that these were delicious. For our Christmas Eve (one week early) dinner, we decided to cook lobster, as it was on sale. Adam surprised me with filet to go along with it, and he grilled it all to perfection. I love seafood and even after I had 3 tails, I wanted more! I suggested that it become our tradition to eat this every holiday, because it was just a nice way to kick off the time together. The recipe is also super easy and fast, so go ahead and try it next time your seafood store has a sale!

Grilled Lobster Tail
Lobster Tail
Butter, melted
Large pot Boiling Water

Butter Mixture for cooking:
Butter, melted
Olive Oil
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Kosher Salt

Place Lobster Tails on Skewers and place in boiling water for 8 minutes (make sure the water covers the tails)

Take the tails out and place on a baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut a slit on the bottom side of the lobster shell, until you hit the end of the meat.

Mix together the butter ingredients and brush along the slit side of the lobster. (amounts will depend on how much you need - this you can just eyeball)

Take the lobster off of the sheet and place on the grill for 8 minutes (slit side up). Brush again with butter mixture once you remove it from the grill. Serve with melted butter for dipping.
