Disappointed by restaurant lobster tacos, I created this recipe for great at-home lobster tacos my family enjoys. I used my grill pan for cooking inside.

  • Cut lobster tails in half lengthwise along the spine. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Grill until slightly charred and shells are bright in color, about 5 minutes. Remove lobster meat from the shells and chop coarsely.

  • Combine chile sauce, 1/2 the tomato, and green onions in a large bowl. Mix in chopped lobster meat.

  • Divide Colby-Monterey Jack cheese evenly among tortillas. Top each tortilla with some of the lobster mixture. Fold tacos over and grill until cheese melts and tortillas are lightly charred, about 1 minute per side. Garnish with remaining tomato, avocado, and shredded lettuce.

Cook's Note:

Serve on corn tortillas if you prefer.

Made these yesterday for our Bills/Patriots tailgate. I prepared the tails ahead of time adding a little lime juice and butter as they cooked in the shell and then did the reheat adding the Herdez sauce tomato & green onion on site. Also used a double layer of toasted corn tortillas since the filling was a bit saucy. Delish! And fast. Read More

Really delicious. Found small lobster tails on sale so I splurged on a couple. This comes together very quickly. The guajillo sauce is my very favorite of the Herdez sauces so I was happy to see this recipe. I used corn tortillas. I am going to try this with some fake lobster next time as that is a little more in my price range Read More

We really liked this as a change of pace. I bought lobster already cooked and did not reheat the meat as I didn't want it to dry out. Even so these were good. Read More
