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.


None at this time.

Did I miss the recommended grilling temperature and direct or indirect method?

What is the top membrane? Recipe is confusing.

It says to cut the top membrane and discard. What is the top membrane? I usually cut the shell, loosen the meat and set it on top of the shell. Where is the membrane?

Need tutoring

Getting the tail meat up on top of shell challenges my fumble fingers. Make a mess of half of them.taste fine/just ugly !
Any tricks anyone can share.
It is a great way to do lobster tails in any event.

So easy and so good! I do add a little Old Bay Seasoning to the butter for a little extra flavor.

Simple, fresh and delicious !

I've particularly like that this is so easy. Just fire up the grill, fix the tails with just a touch of butter to enhance this wonderful gift from the sea.

lobster grill

when you grill it outside use wood chips and seasoning such as Cajun or any thing your like for a greater taste and a kick.
