Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the lobster tails down the center through the meat but not all the way through the shell.
  2. Fold over butterfly style.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients and brush over the meat.
  4. Put some foil over your grill and place the tails, shell side down on the foil.
  5. Cook, covered, for about 14-16 minutes until the meat is firm and white.
  6. Brush occasionally while cooking.
  7. Loosen the meat slightly before serving and brush one last time with the citrus butter.
  8. NOTE: We broiled instead of grilled.
  9. Used a broiling pan with the broiler on low, with the tails about 6 inches from the heat source and watched them the entire time.
  10. We serve with the remaining citrus butter.
  11. You may choose to make extra.
