Grilled Lobster with Lime-Bay Butter

Grilled Lobster

Yields: 6

A summertime treat, lobster is a delicate and delectable dish. If your just doing tails you can probably skip the whole par-boil process as you do not want an over-cooked 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.
  4. Transfer lobsters to a serving plate and garnish with lime wedges and bay leaves, if desired. Serve one-half lobster per person.
