Ingredients
  • 4 (1 1/2-pound) spiny lobsters
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic
  • 4 ounces chopped fresh herbs of your choice (we like to use Italian parsley, basil, thyme, tarragon and a bit of rosemary)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 stick (1/4-pound) butter, cut in 8 pieces
  • 1 cup clarified butter
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 8 lemon wedges
Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Preheat the grill to high.

Split lobsters; butterfly from the top and remove intestines. Rinse head area in cold water to remove any waste matter.

In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, and all of the garlic and chopped herbs. Set aside.

Brush lobsters lightly with remaining oil and grill for approximately 5 minutes, meaty side down. Turn halfway through for grill marking and even cooking. Remove lobsters from grill, and place on a sheet pan, meaty side up. Coat with the herb and garlic mixture and season with salt and pepper. Place 2 pieces of butter on each lobster tail and put in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix the clarified butter mixed with the lemon juice. Drizzle over lobster as a sauce. Garnish with lemon wedges.
