Grilled Lobster with Garlic-Parsley Butter

Grilled Lobster with Garlic-Parsley Butter


  • 1 (16 ounces) lobster. 
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil. 
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened.
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley. 
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes. 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced. 
  • 1 lemon zest. 
  • 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper.


  1. In a bowl mix butter, parsley, chili flakes, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. 
  2. Break the lobster in half lengthwise across the head and tail with a cleaver. Break off the claws and scoop out the yellow-green tomalley. Place lobster halves on a baking sheet, shell side down; crack claws and place them on the baking sheet. 
  3. Drizzle oil over the halves and claws and season with salt and black pepper. 
  4. Preheat the grill for 10 minutes. 
  5. Transfer lobster halves, flesh side down, and claws on the hottest side of the grill; grill for 2-3 minutes, or until mildly charred. 
  6. Turn the lobster over and brush it with the garlic-parsley butter with a spoon. 
  7. Continue grilling until the lobster meat is tender, about 3 minutes more.
