Ingredients

Directions

Insert a metal skewer lengthwise into the meat of the lobster tails to keep them from curling. Put the tails into a large pot of boiling water and parboil for about 5 to 7 minutes. (We only want to cook them 3/4 of the way through, because the lobster tails will finish cooking on the grill.) Once parboiled, remove the skewers. Using kitchen shears, cut lengthwise down the underside shell of the tail to remove the meat. Discard the shells. Wrap the lobster tails crosswise with slices of pancetta. Tip: When wrapping the lobster meat in pancetta, wrap tightly and squeeze to make it stick. The fat from the pancetta acts as a glue. Once wrapped, put the lobster tail on the LOWEST HEAT of the grill. Remove the lobster tails from the grill to a serving platter.

Mango Salad: Dice the avocado, mango, and jicama and add them to a serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then stir in a little olive oil, the lime juice and the mint. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

Summer Salad: Grill the jalapeno and green onions for 2 to 3 minutes, and the corn for 5 to 7 minutes on the HOTTEST HEAT of the grill. Remove the vegetables from the grill to a cutting board. Slice the green onion, cut the corn off the cob, and dice the jalapeno pepper and add them to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Melt the butter in a cast iron pan and stir in the seasoned vegetables. Keep the vegetables warm on the grill. When ready to serve transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl. Serve the lobster with the Mango Salad and Summer Salad.
