With a subtle sweetness and rich flavor, no matter how you cook it, lobster is always delicious, but you can’t go wrong by adding a little smokiness on the grill. Experience lobster in a whole new way with our Pfaelzer Brothers Premium Lobster Tails and these keys to great grilled lobster.
Getting Ready for Grilling
The first step is making sure that your lobster tail is properly prepared for the grill. First, lay the tail shell-side up on a cutting board. Then, using a sharp knife, slice down the center of the lobster shell, taking care not to cut all the way through the meat. Finish by folding the shell back at the slice, exposing the delicious meat inside.
Once your lobster is ready, add your own personal touch with these lobster tail recipes for the grill.
Accentuate the Lobster Flavor
Let the lobster speak for itself, and keep it simple with a marinade of olive oil, chives, garlic, and salt and pepper.
Lobster also works wonderfully with fruity flavors. For a unique sauce, make one out of nectarines and limes by pureeing the fruit and lime juice together with olive oil, salt, and a bit of habanero pepper.
Add Some Heat
If you are craving a little taste of the islands, you will love a jerk version of your lobster. To make your own spicy jerk sauce, start by sauteeing garlic, ginger, a scotch bonnet pepper, and scallions. Then, add some Caribbean spice with allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. For extra depth of flavor, finish with chicken stock, soy sauce, lime juice, and brown sugar. Spoon the sauce over the lobster while grilling and serve with coconut rice.
For an upscale twist on classic pub food, try lobster nachos. After grilling your lobster, roughly chop the meat. Then layer the lobster onto tortilla chips with salsa and our Farmhouse Cheddar. Finish the nachos by melting the cheese under a broiler.
No matter how you top it, grilled lobster is a truly special treat. Make a decadent meal in no time by ordering our Caribbean Premium Lobster Tails from Pfaelzer Brothers.
