  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt, to taste
  • 4 lobster tails, (8 to 10 ounces each)
  • lemon wedges, for serving


  • Preheat grill.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together the melted butter, lemon juice, basil, parsley, garlic, and salt. Set aside.
  • With your kitchen shears, cut straight along the middle of the top of the lobster shell towards the fins of the tail; don’t cut through the fin.
  • Using your fingers, gently open up the shell.
    With a knife or kitchen shears, cut halfway through the meat down the center. DO NOT cut all the way through.
  • Insert a skewer through the lobster, lengthwise.
  • Lightly brush the lobster flesh with the butter mixture.
  • Grill, flesh side down, for about 6 minutes, or until lightly charred.
  • Flip over the lobster; brush with remaining butter and grill for about 4 to 5 more minutes, or until cooked through. Cooked lobster meat should be sturdy and opaque.
  • Remove from grill. Garnish with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
