Grilling Lobster

Postby TampaBayFish » August 5th, 2013, 5:37 pm

Me and a buddy are having a debate on Grilling Lobster. Last time I was at Lobsterfest 2010, I bought two lobsters off the street and took them home to grill I remember asking the guy at the street festival how to grill them he said, Twist their heads off and split the backs down the middle and pack with butter and Grill. That is just what I did....however I don't remember having to boil them prior. SO my question is. do you have to boil them for about 5 minutes prior? If not what are the first steps? This year I'm not buying we're getting our own so we need to know. If they are alive, are we going to have a wrestling match to get their heads off? Or am I just being mean as hell twising their heads off? Every Recipe I found online says start with lobster tails but doesn't go into the "prep" details too much because most people don't want to start at the beginning. Thanks in advance I'm sure someone can point us in the right direction.

There are a ton of different ways to cook them.

Most people start by removing the tail. I've only seen once where someone cooked the entire Lobster. I think this is done more in places where food is scarce and they try not to waste even the smallest bit.
You can see how to remove the tail here ... obster.php

You do not want to boil the Florida lobster first. That is how people make Maine lobster, not Florida lobster.

Grilling and baking are typically done the same way.
You can follow the directions for cooking here ... ster-tail/

If you would like to see a video of how to cook them, you can watch this video on making a Florida lobster roll. The initial steps where the lobster is actually cooked are identical.
