Grilling the Perfect Lobster Tail

One of the best things to make during a barbecue feast is a delectable grilled lobster tail. You can make a delicious surf -n turf dinner with grilled fresh lobster tails and filet mignon.

Grilling Lobster Tails
Lobster tails should be cooked on medium heat, so if you are using charcoal, you will need to move most of the coals to one side of the grill. Grill the lobster tails on the cooler side of the grill. They only take a few minutes to grill, so when you are done grilling the steaks (and they are resting), you can grill the lobster tails.

Enhancing Your Lobster Tails
What are fresh lobster tails without garlic butter? You can also make the garlic butter on the grill. Put ¼ cup butter in a thick-bottomed pan. Add two tablespoons of garlic powder or one tablespoon crushed garlic to the butter.

Set the pan on a cooler part of the grill. If you prefer a different type of dipping sauce, you can either prepare it ahead of time, or if it only takes a few minutes, prepare it at the time you would prepare the garlic butter.

Add the lobster tails to the grill.  You do not need to wrap them in foil. Put them as they are right on the grill. Using tongs, flip them over one time. The shell should be bright red when they are finished.

Remove the tails from the grill, and using a chef's knife or large kitchen shears, cut the top part of the shell open. If using a knife, take care not to cut down into the lobster meat too far.

Garnish with lemon twists and parsley sprigs. Serve with the steaks and a side of garlic butter for a delicious steak and lobster dinner.
