Garlic Butter Lobster – Broiled

Simplicity personified…

Give me lobster everyday and I’ll be one happy soul. Being a lobster fanatic, I don’t know why it took me so long to make lobster in my kitchen. I usually order lobster at restaurants and most of the time I had to dive in deep into the dish in search of lobster. There is nothing more¬†disappointing than finding a teeny weeny bit of lobster. A few weeks ago I had lobster at a French restaurant, ‘the tasting room’, unlike other restaurants they were generous and the sight of huge chunks of lobster meat cheered me up and I enjoyed it like anything.

Hope everyone had a lovely Monday. It was an unbelievably windy day, as I walked through my campus I felt the wind might knock me down, glad that I am intact. While I was driving, I felt the car vibrating, glad that my car is intact. After reaching home, looking into my backyard I saw the barbecue grill lying flat on the ground, the wind did have a tug of war with the heavy grill, glad that I don’t have to buy a new grill…

I wrapped up Sunday by serving this garlic butter lobster. As always my goal was to cook in the most simplest way, yet it should taste delicious. I made a simple marinade as I didn’t want to overly flavor up the lobster and wanted to enjoy the taste of it.

Garlic Butter Broiled Lobster

Ingredients

  • Lobster, 5-6 oz- 2 halved
  • Garlic, grated fresh- 1 clove
  • Lemon zest, grated- zest of 1 small lemon
  • Mint, minced- 3 to 4 leaves (optional)
  • Ground pepper- 1/4 tsp
  • Salt- little
  • Butter, melted- 2-3 tbsp

Instruction

  • I didn’t have the nerve to buy the whole lobster, so I got the halved frozen lobster.
  • Rinse the lobster under running water.
  • Place the halved lobster with the shell side down on a cutting board.
  • If you look at it, you can see that the meat has a thick white covering with small thorns on it.
  • Using a kitchen scissor, cut the covering and remove it so that the meat forms the top layer.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the other ingredients.
  • Butter should be melted.
  • Dip a pastry brush in the butter garlic marinade, and brush it evenly on the lobster meat.
  • Let stand for a few minutes.
  • Place the marinated lobster on a baking pan lined with aluminum foil.
  • Turn the broil mode in the oven to low.
  • Keep the oven rack in the middle (don’t keep the rack on top)
  • Place the pan on the rack and broil for 10-12 minutes. ( Broiling time depends upon the thickness of the tail, so keep an eye)
  • Don’t over broil it as the lobster will burn.
  • Remove from the oven and serve warm.
  • I served the lobster along with quail egg fried rice and boiled purple sweet potatoes.

Tips:

  • Broil the lobster in the shell so that it will remain moist
