Grilled Lobster


4 whole ( 1½ pound) live lobsters

¾ cup butter, softened

2 Tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

1 Tablespoon green onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon lemon zest

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

½ teaspoon pink Himalayan salt

½ teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper

2 whole lemons, sliced


Bring large stock pot of water to a rolling boil. Working in batches, place tip of a sharp chef's knife in the lobster's back, just below its head + working quickly, slice through the head to dispatch the lobster. Submerge lobster in boiling water head first, then cover stock pot with lid. Cook for 2 minutes, until bright red. Transfer to ice-bath to cool + stop cooking process, about 5 minutes. Using a very sharp knife, split lobster into 2 halves. Clean out innards from body + discard. In a medium bowl, mix softened butter with parsley, green onion, garlic, lemon zest + lemon juice. Season with salt + pepper. Whisk together until smooth. Set aside. When ready to cook, set grill temperature at 425 degrees F + preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. When grill is hot, place lobsters on grill, flesh side down, + cook for 4 minutes. Turn, + spoon about 2 teaspoons butter mixture onto each lobster half. As butter begins to melt, baste with a brush all over the flesh. Cook 4 to 5 minutes until cooked through + coated in melted butter. Serve immediately with sliced lemons + desired side dishes.


Instead of going out on Valentine's Day, we either go out well before or try to fix a fancy meal in + enjoy our time with each other + the kids. This is one thing on the menu that always feels like a special splurge + makes them feel special. Nothing like making it yourself at home (+ saving big $$$ in the process)!
