A few weeks back we caught an amazing sale on lobster tails – it was a no-brainer to grill them. They weren’t very big but 1 lobster tail per person was the perfect amount {we also had a grilled steak for some surf-n-turf goodness!}

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.

Use a sharp pair of kitchen shears to cut a slit down the back of the lobster tail to the tail fan. We added minced garlic, a sprinkle of seat salt, a pad of butter and a lime slice.

Place the tails cut side down on the grill {grill on indirect heat}. Cook for about 5-7 minutes and then flip them over – cook them on the direct heat and close the lid. 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! Lobster tails are done when an internal read thermometer like a thermapen reads 145 degrees.
