It’s summertime which means it’s also lobster season! For me, this dish is the ultimate feast! If you love lobster as much as I do, then this will definitely be a treat. Grilled lobster is the perfect meal to impress at your next dinner party, but this dish is also simple enough to serve any night of the week. For this recipe I par boiled the lobster and finished it on the grill along with the shrimp and corn to create a delicious salad that compliments the meal.
If you are nervous or apprehensive about cooking live lobsters – please don’t be, cooking them live is not as bad as it seems. This recipe may look like a lot of steps, but trust me it is totally worth it. The grilled shrimp and corn salad is served along with the lobster, but can be enjoyed as a side with any of your favorite dishes.
Prepping the lobster to grill is really the most technical part of this recipe. After boiling you have to slice the lobster in halve from the head to its tail. To complete this step, place the tip of your knife right between the eyes of the lobster and press down. DON’T BE SCARED… give it a little muscle to make sure you are cutting all the way through. Continue to cut all the way down until you have sliced the lobster in half.
Break the claws in half to enjoy their succulent meat. To take this dish up a notch, serve the lobster with melted garlic or parsley butter for dipping!
Doesn’t this just look delicious? Have you ever cooked lobster at home, will this recipe make you give it a try?
