In the words of Nigel Sylvester, “I never knew it was that simple to make lobster tails.” Learn how to whip up Chef JJ’s grilled lobster tails.
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 garlic cloves, rough chopped
2 tablespoons chopped chives
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
8 (6-8oz) lobster tails
Cracked black pepper
Add the butter into a medium saute pan or pot over medium-high heat. Add
the garlic into the butter and begin to cook until the garlic is tender and the
butter is golden brown.
Add the herbs into the browned butter and mix.
Split the back of the lobster tail by using kitchen shears. Pull the back out of
the shell and season with salt.
Turn your grill on high heat. If you don’t have access to a grill, you can use
a cast iron griddle with a grill side (oil the griddle if using).
Once the grill is hot, add the lobster tails, meat side down. You want good
grill flavor and grill marks.
Flip the lobsters over and cook until medium. You do not want to overcook
the lobster meat.
Turn the grill off and brush the Garlic Herb Butter over the lobster tails and
season with cracked black pepper, and serve.
