Summer Food: Grilled Lobster Tails

1. Comments

The thought of summer-time conjures up a few images for me, the kids building cities made of sand, soft serve ice cream with sprinkles, lazy hazy nights, and oh yes lobster {if you grill them they’re even dreamier!}

A few weeks back Will caught an amazing sale on lobster tails. They weren’t huge, but they were perfect for our little surf-n-turf meal we were grilling up. 

Grilling has become our favorite ways to cook together. It involves a real team effort – normally I’m inside marinating and chopping while he’s prepping the grill.

He loves to man the grill and to be honest I have no problem with that because it gives me time to sit back and sip some sweet iced tea!

These grilled lobster tails are made super easy – they’re lobster you don’t need to add much to make ’em good! A pinch of salt, some butter and lime {or lemon} is all you need for an amazing grilled summer meal!

Prep Time

Ingredients
  1. lobster tails
  2. butter
  3. minced garlic
  4. sea salt
  5. limes {or lemons}
Instructions
  1. The recipe and method is very easy so the first step is to prepare your grill. You’ll want to grill the lobster tails on medium high heat.
  2. Use a sharp pair of kitchen shears to cut a slit down the back of the lobster tail to the tail fan.
  3. We added minced garlic, a sprinkle of seat salt, a pad of butter and a lime slice inside each lobster tail.
  4. Place the tails cut side down on the grill {grill on indirect heat}.
  5. Cook for about 5-7 minutes and then flip them over – cook them on the direct heat and close the lid.
  6. This will only take about 5 minutes – maybe even less depending on the size of your lobster tails so stay close by you definitely don’t want to over-cook these!
GrillGirl.com Tip
  1. Lobster tails are done when an internal read thermometer like a thermapen reads 145 degrees.
