How to Grill Lobster Tails

Grilling lobster tails is a great technique for that unique char flavor. Cooking lobster tails on the grill is also a great technique because you can add the grill lines on your lobster tails for an added effect for your guests. Lobster tails are unique because if you cut them the long way (down the center) you won't even have to flip your tails, you can just cook them on one side. In the grilling directions below you can add some spices before you put your lobster tails on the grill for added flavor. Be sure your tails are completely thawed before you get started, if you aren't sure if your tails are thawed or not, please see our lobster tails thawing instructions before you start grilling. You'll also want to make sure you have your grilling utensils handy so your tails don't over-cook.

How to Grill Lobster Tails - A Step-By-Step Guide

1. Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire.

2. Brush olive oil on cut sides of the lobster tails and set them bottom side down on the cooking grates.
3. Grill until the shells are bright red and the protein in the juices that seep from the shells turns white and coagulates. (There’s no need to turn the lobster tail over.) Do not overcook.
4. A thawed lobster tail will take about 8 minutes to grill.
5. Remove the lobster tail from the grill and let cool for a few minutes.
6. Serve warm with butter or the dipping sauce of your choice.
