Grilled Lobster on the Split

Bring that grill up to high heat, slather a nice amount of lobster butter on the halves and grill quickly no more than a few minutes and you will be in happy lobster land.


  • 4 lobsters
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coral lobster roe
  • your favorite seafood seasoning. For a New England hint I use Old Bay. For a Louisiana flair I use Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning.


Slice the lobsters from head to tail, right down the middle.

In a mixing bowl, place softened butter (no need to melt it) and fold in about a quarter cup of red coral lobster row. Spread this lobster butter liberally on top of the lobster meat. Season with your favorite seafood seasoning.

On a hot grill lay the lobster halves down and keep a sharp eye out for signs of over cooking. Lobsters should all be done in less than 2 or 3 minutes.
