Grilled Lobster with Garlic

Fancy and incredibly easy to make, our grilled lobster recipe comes together in under 20 minutes! The perfect dinner to make for any occasion.

8 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
1 1⁄2 tsp. crushed red chile flakes
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Zest of 1 lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 lobster 
1⁄4 cup olive oil


1) Combine butter, parsley, chile flakes, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl. 
2) Using a cleaver, split lobster in half lengthwise through its head and tail. Scoop out and discard the yellow-green tomalley and break off claws. Transfer lobster halves, shell side down, to a baking sheet; crack claws and place them on the baking sheet. 
3) Drizzle halves and claws with oil, and season with salt and pepper.
4) Heat a charcoal grill, place lobster halves, flesh side down, and claws on hottest part of grill; cook until slightly charred, 2-3 minutes. Flip lobster over and using a spoon, spread lobster with the garlic-parsley butter; continue grilling until lobster meat is tender, 3-5 minutes more.
