1In a large to medium mixing bowl combine the lemon juice, olive oil and a dash of pepper and salt.

2Butterfly the lobster tails by cutting the upper shell down the center of the back with scissors to the tail and spread the shell-halves apart so you can see the tail meat in the shell; but, leave the bottom shell intact.

3Place the butterflied lobsters in the mixing bowl marinade and leave for about 20 mins

4Pre-heat your grill so that the internal temperature reaches 350 degrees and set up your grill for direct grilling. [Please Note: If you are using a charcoal grill make sure that before you remove the coals from your charcoal chimney that the are ash "white" for best results.]


1Once the internal temperature of your grill reaches 350 degrees place your steak at a 45 degree angle. Rotate your steak another 45 degrees and leave for additional times.

2Flip your steak and place the steak at a 45 degree angle. Rotate your steak another 45 degree angle and leave until the steak hits your desired temperature.

3Once the steak has hit your desired temperature, remove from the grill and let the steak rest for about 10 minutes to complete the cooking process.


1Remove the lobster tails from it's marinade and place a wooden skewer into the tails to prevent the tails from curling up while you grill them.

2On another section of the grill while you are grilling the steak,place the lobster tails shell-side down. Grill approximately 6 to 8 minutes, on a medium heat.

3While grilling using the leftover marinade, baste the lobster tails using a grill brush and and turn tails over.

4Grill the lobster tails for approximately 4 to 5 more minutes or until the meat is opaque and no longer transparent and firm to the touch. Remove from grill.

5Plate the steak and the lobster right next to each other and enjoy!!
