Simple Grilled Lobster Tails
- 6 lobster tails
- butter, melted
To prepare lobster tails for grilling: Using kitchen shears, cut the top membrane off the lobster tails and discard. Partially loosen the meat from the shell, leaving the end of the tail attached. Gently lift the loosened tail meat up and rest just on top of the shell. Brush tails with melted butter. When the grill is ready, arrange the tails shell side down 3-4 inches from the heat and cook 8-10 minutes. Brush with butter again, and turn tails over so the meat side is on the grill. Continue to cook 2-4 minutes until the meat is cooked through. Serve with melted butter.
Unbelievably simple preparation yet very delicious and impressive looking. When I don't feel like putting them on the grill I have also cooked the lobster tails easily in the toaster oven. Makes enjoying the lobster tails when they go on sale even easier!!!
