Grilled Lobster with Lemon Garlic
Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 25 mins|
Bring a little surf to your turf and take a page from Dennis The Prescott’s cookbook. You’ll be dreaming about this smoky ocean dweller for a long time.
(4) 1 1/2 LB LIVE LOBSTERS
2 tbsp 2 T OLIVE OIL
2 LEMONS, SLICED
FLAT LEAF PARSLEY, TO SERVE
LEMON GARLIC BUTTER
3/4 cup BUTTER, SOFTENED
2 Tbsp FLAT LEAF PARSLEY, FINELY DICED
1 Tbsp MINCED SHALLOT
2 CLOVES GARLIC, MINCED
1 Tbsp LEMON JUICE
1 Tbsp LEMON ZEST
1/2 tsp SEA SALT
1/2 tsp FRESH CRACKED BLACK PEPPER
Bring a large stockpot of water to a rapid boil. Working in batches as necessary, submerge the lobster in the water head first, then cover with a lid. Cook for 5 minutes, then transfer to an ice-bath to cool and stop the cooking process.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium low heat. When melted, add the remaining ingredients and whisk together until smooth. Set aside.
Using a very sharp knife, split the lobster into 2 halves. Clean out the tomalley from the body and discard. Brush the lobster halves all over with olive oil.
When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
When hot, place the lobsters on the grill, flesh side down, and cook for 4 minutes. Turn, and spoon about 2 tsp of compound butter onto each lobster halve. As the butter begins to melt, baste with a brush all over the flesh. Cook for 4-5 minutes until cooked through and coated in melted butter.
Serve immediately with sliced lemons and parsley. Enjoy!
