Grilled Lobster Tails with Herb Garlic Butter
- 4 Medium lobster tails, if frozen thawed
- Olive oil spray
- pinch salt and pepper, to taste
- lemon wedges, for serving
- 2 tbsp. Herb Garlic Butter, see below
Herb Compound Butter
- 8 tbsp. Unsalted butter, 1 stick, at room temperature
- ¼ cup Not packed minced fresh herbs (Italian parsley, chives or basil)
- 2 tbsp. Minced garlic
- ½ tsp. Kosher salt
- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- 1 tsp. Lemon juice
- Reynolds Kitchens Quick Cut Plastic Wrap
- Place butter in a mixing bowl and use a rubber spatula to soften until it is very spreadable. Add remaining ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Place compound butter on the center a sheet of a sheet of plastic wrap or parchment paper. Shape into a round log, and twist the ends to seal. Place butter in the refrigerator to harden, at least 30 to 60 minutes. Once solid, it will be easy to slice
- Place each tail, shell side up, on a cutting board. Using a large sharp knife, cut through the shell directly down the center, beginning at the tail and down to where the body use to be.
- Season the exposed meat with pinch of salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste and spritz with olive oil.
- Preheat grill to medium high, clean and oil the grates. To cook, place each tail half directly on the grate flesh side down and close the hood. Cook about 1 1/2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees (to cross-hatch), close the hood and grill for another 1 1/2 minutes.
- Remove the tails to a pan and spread each one with 1/2 tablespoon of butter.
- Return the tails to the grill, flesh side up. Close the hood and allow them to grill for another 3 to 5 minutes depending on the size, until the tail meat is opaque and firm to the touch.
- Remove the tails, serve with lemon wedges.
