Grilled Lobster with Lime-Bay Butter

grilled lobster with lime bay butter

There is nothing better than a perfectly grilled lobster (except maybe a perfectly grilled lobster that you also caught yourself.) This simple recipe is one we're sure you will enjoy. Just be sure not to overcook your lobster.


  • 3 fresh lobsters
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Crushed Bay Leaf
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Lime wedges (optional)
  • Bay leaves (optional)


  1. Bring 3 inches of water in an 8-quart saucepan to boiling over high heat. Add lobsters to the pan, cover, and cook 10 minutes. Remove lobsters from saucepan and let cool.
  2. Heat grill to medium heat. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, lime juice, bay leaf, black pepper, and salt over low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. When lobsters are cool to the touch, cut in half lengthwise and brush cut side with lime-bay butter. Place lobsters, cut-side down, on the grill about 4 inches from heat source. Cook 5 minutes. Carefully turn lobsters over, brush with butter, and continue grilling until lobster meat is cooked through about 5 minutes longer depending on the size of your lobster.
  4. Transfer lobsters to a serving plate and garnish with lime wedges and bay leaves, if desired. Serve one-half lobster per person.
