My husband isn't the most creative or talented cook on the planet. In fact, he's more a master microwaver than anything else. My aunts gave us a fantastic grill for a wedding present, however, so he got a little more adventurous and has become quite the grill-master. One of his specialties is garlic grilled lobster tails, which I thought I would share!
We buy the lobster tails whenever they're on sale at our Harris Teeter, which makes them $5.99 each. Not something we can have every day, but a nice little treat at the end of a long work week.
First, he cuts the lobsters through the exoskeleton, then uses the butcher knife to cut through the meat. After he does that for each tail, he spoons a mixture of butter and minced garlic over the tails and lets it sit while the grill heats. That way, all that deliciousness seeps down in.
The tails then go on the grill shell-side up for about 6 minutes. Then he flips them, and spoons more of that delightful garlic butter mixture over the meat and lets it melt down into the tails. There are wonderful grill marks on the meat now.
My wonderful husband lets them cook for two more minutes, then they're ready to eat! Serve them with a little more butter for dipping--it's a religious experience!
