Preparing Lobster For The Grill

To ready the lobster for the grill, it needs to be split into equal halves. A large, sharp heavy knife will do the chore with little problem.

Lobster Under The Knife





After the lobster is split in two, the halves are given a quick rinse in running water. The results look like this...






Lobster Halves On a Dish






It's almost ready to pop onto the grill. The last step is to separate the claws from the lobster halves. The claws will need an extra minute or two of grilling time.


Grilled Lobster

Your grill should be preheated at the highest setting. Place the lobster halves and claws over direct heat, 3 to 5 minutes for the body halves and 5 to 7 minutes for the claws. The lobster pictured weighed one and one-quarter pounds. The tail section was perfectly done after three minutes...the claws took five minutes.

Garlic Butter For Dipping

This one is simple. Melt one-quarter cup of butter and add crushed garlic to taste. One or two cloves would be about right for me, but you may like more (or less).

Crack the claws with a hammer or large pliers to get to the meat. The tail meat is easy to pick out from the split section. Just dip the grilled lobster in garlic butter and pop it in your mouth. The flavor is fantastic. Go ahead. Give it a try!
