Garlic Herb Butter
Grilled Lobster Tails & Corn
Garlic herb butter is an absolute favorite of mine. I make the butter homemade and then use a mortar & pestle to really infuse the garlic and herbs into the butter. Below we share the link to the recipe post for our garlic herb butter, be sure to check it out, the butter is a must for this recipe!
My grill is my best friend. We have about 6 months of winter here, but I have been known to clear the deck of snow and use that thing mid January. When grilling you have the ability to achieve a super high heat that helps keep meat extra moist and give a great smokey flavor to your food. I never place any piece of meat on the grill unless it has reach 500º.
With these lobster tails there is no searing necessary. Instead, the high heat will cook the meat quickly while the shell holds in the moisture. End result- juicy lobster tails.
Peel the corn and cut a slit along the top of the lobster shell. Preheat the grill on medium high, watch for the temperature to reach at the least, 400º
Skewer the lobster tails to prevent them from curling up. Drizzle with Olive oil, salt & pepper.
Rub some garlic herb butter right into the corn. Fold a piece of aluminum foil into a “pan” with sides folded up to keep the melted butter from spilling out into the grill. This will keep the corn cooking in the butter the whole time. Cook for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
Place the lobster tails cut side down on the grill. Cook for 5 minutes. Turn them over when the shell is bright red and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Time will depend on the size of the tails. These tails came from standard pound and a quarter (1.25lb) lobsters. Brush with the garlic herb butter.
Remove the corn and lobster tails from the grill. Sprinkle with sea salt & fresh chopped herbs.
