Ingredients
  • 1 whole lobster
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for greasing
  • Melted butter, for serving
  • Lemon wedges, for serving 
Directions
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the 4 tablespoons of melted butter, lemon juice and garlic and mix. Season with salt and set aside.
  2. Make an ice bath. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the lobster, completely submerging it for 5 minutes. Using tongs, remove the lobster and transfer to the ice bath.
  3. Using a chefs knife, split the lobster lengthwise into two halves and remove the tomalley (green substance in the body cavity). Cut small slits in the claws on the side that will be facing up from the grill to allow them to vent while cooking. Using a pastry brush, coat the exposed meat with the garlic-butter mixture.
  4. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-hot grilling. Brush the grates with olive oil. Transfer the lobster flesh side down to the brushed grates and grill until the meat has cooked all the way through, about 5 minutes. Serve with melted butter and lemon wedges.
