  • Preheat your grill to high.
  • Using scissors, cut through the shell until you reach the tail.
  • Pierce each lobster tail with a skewer.
  • In a small pot, warm the butter until melted, skimming off any whey that floats to the surface
  • Add the fresh herbs, salt, pepper and lemon juice and mix.
  • Brush each lobster tail with some of the herb butter and then place onto the grill with the cut side facing up.
  • Grill for about 4 minutes, then turn each tail over and grill for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Once the tails are fully cooked, using scissors, cut along the belly and open the shell to expose the meat.
  • Brush generously with the herb butter, making sure to get into all the cracks.
  • Serve with more lemon-herb butter on the side.
