As part of our Mother's Day dinner we had grilled lobsters. I have admit, that I wasn't a big fan of lobster. I have always found it to be blend. But this recipe change my whole view on it, and left me wanting more.
If you are like myself and are on the fence about lobster, the highly recommend try this recipe at least one, you will not be disappointed.
Recipe source...my father-in-law (the recipe below was for 3 lobsters)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 live lobster per person about (1.25-1.50lb each)with this you are going to require a large pot to boil your lobster
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
salt and pepper (to taste)
one bunch of parsley
juice of one lemon
3 tablespoons of butter melted
1/4 Mozzarella cheese (just enough to sprinkle on each one)
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO:
Fill large pot with water, add salt, and bring to a good boil.
Take you live lobsters and put them in the freezer for about 5-7 minutes just long enough for them to become dormant.
Remove lobsters from freezer and place in boiling water. Cover and let cook for about 10-12 minutes (until lobster shell becomes a nice bright red)
Remove lobsters from pot and set them aside to cool.
In a small blow melt butter, add minced garlic, finely chopped parsley, and lemon juice, combine together and set aide.
Once your lobsters have cooled take one at a time, and cut in down the center.
Place each half on a cookie sheet and top with butter mixture, and then a sprinkle of cheese. Sprinkle each one with a tiny pinch of paprika.
Place each half on the grill and let cook until the cheese begins to melt, and lobster meat is warm (about 3 minutes)
Remove from grill and serve right away!
