|cut down scaled side|
|cut down feet side|
after cutting, you will want to gently pull them apart to expose the meat.
lay prepared lobster tails in baking pan for marinating; pour SOME marinade over each tail and let sit for about 10 minutes (in or out of fridge, whatev). keep the rest of the marinade for the grill.
i bet you want the marinade recipe, huh? oh, ok.......
whisk together the following: (these are approximate. i add til i like the taste)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice (i use fresh)
however much chopped fresh garlic you fancy
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
a few squirts of honey-maybe 3 tbsp (i add honey to like, everything)
pre oil grill grate
pre heat grill to med-high.
place lobster tails feet down on grill. squirt some marinade on meat, close cover and grill for about 7 minutes.
after 7 minutes or so, the tails should be turning red. flip them over and squirt more marinade over. grill for an additional 3 minutes or so.
the lobster tails are done when flesh is opaque and scales are bright red.
|voila! THAT easy!|
on the side, i steamed some broccoli and grilled some potatoes. these potatoes are one of the first things i ever learned how to make. i have to say, i make them A LOT. probably more than i should, but they are simple and quite good. you can make them however you want, here's what i do:
quarter about 8 redskin potatoes
chop 1/2 red onion
put in bowl and add:
my favorite spice mix miracle blend
my favorite italian herb blend
a bit of olive oil.. 2 tbsp maybe, NOT TOO MUCH.
mix together with your hands
pour potatoes onto foil sheet
then, use the foil to make a tent and roll up the ends to trap the steam:
place on grill over medium heat about 15 minutes before putting lobster on. potatoes take a total of 20-25 minutes to be done.
