Barbecued Rock Lobster Tails
- Frozen rock lobster tails (2 per person)
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- Using kitchen shears, snip off thin shell on the underside of the lobster tail; then starting at the tail end, split the lobster shell up the back about 3/4 of the length.
- Combine remaining ingredients for a basting sauce; refrigerate sauce and lobster tails until time to cook.
- Prepare bed of coals in charcoal grill and cook lobster tails, shell side down, 3 inches above coals, for 8 minutes, brushing with sauce. Turn lobster tails; brush with sauce and cook 6 minutes on the other side. Keep turning and brushing with sauce until lobster tails are done.
Sauce is sufficient to baste 12 tails.
