Best answer

- Lobster tails

- Olive oil or melted butter

- Salt and pepper (optional)

- Lemon wedges (for serving)


1. **Thaw the Lobster Tails**: If your lobster tails are frozen, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight or under cold running water for quicker thawing.

2. **Prepare the Lobster Tails**: Use kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut through the top shell of each lobster tail lengthwise, stopping at the tail. Use your fingers to gently spread the shell apart, exposing the meat without detaching it from the shell.

3. **Season the Lobster Tails**: Brush the exposed lobster meat with olive oil or melted butter. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, or leave them plain to let the natural flavor of the lobster shine through.

4. **Preheat the Grill**: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 375-400°F or 190-200°C).

5. **Grill the Lobster Tails**: Place the lobster tails on the preheated grill, meat side down. Close the grill lid and cook for about 5-6 minutes.

6. **Flip and Grill**: Carefully flip the lobster tails over using tongs and grill for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until the lobster meat is opaque and firm and the shells are bright red.

7. **Serve**: Remove the grilled lobster tails from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter. Serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the lobster meat.

8. **Optional: Baste with Butter**: For extra flavor, you can baste the lobster tails with melted butter during the last few minutes of grilling or serve them with melted butter on the side for dipping.

Grilled lobster tails are best enjoyed hot off the grill, so serve them immediately for the freshest flavor and juiciest texture. Pair them with your favorite side dishes, such as grilled vegetables or a fresh salad, for a complete and satisfying meal.
