Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cut lobster tails lengthwise with poultry shears. Cut open claws to allow sauce to reach the meat.

  • Combine butter, lemon juice, onion, parsley, garlic, tarragon, and hot sauce in a bowl. Slather meat with sauce and place face-down on the preheated grill.

  • Cook until lobster begins to char, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip and continue to grill until meat is opaque and firm, 5 to 6 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

I parboil and freeze the lobsters in advance. Blanch live lobsters in boiling brine for 60 seconds, chill in a sink of cold water and ice. Break off the tails and claws. Freeze tails and claws in freezer bags. Discard heads. Frozen tails are easier to split than fresh.
