Simple Grilled Whole Lobster


Cooking fresh lobster may seem intimidating—but after you do it once, it’s really no sweat. Grilling them is a great way to cook fresh lobster as it imparts a delicious smoky flavor to the crustacean’s rich meat, and being that you can eat them right from the shells, it’s super simple too. Just be sure you’re working with a sharp knife when you set out to prepare your grilled lobster. This easy dish makes for a perfectly elegant summer supper for two, so you may just want to have your next date night at home. Serve your grilled lobster with melted butter and lemon wedges, along with whatever fresh sides you love. A simple green salad, grilled corn, or roasted potatoes would all be great options.
