Grilled Lime Pepper Lobster w/ Honey Lime Butter

It’s no secret that I’m always looking for different ways to cook my favorites. I’m big on flavor being more than something that makes the food taste good. I want it to always have a “shock and awe” affect while eating. Flavor should be unexpected, refreshing, unique, and keep you guessing.

Quick to search the freezer for dinner inspiration, I quickly set my heart on these massive lobster tails I snagged at HEB. During my typical grocery run I always find myself on the spice isle – either looking for something new or just simple inspiration. I stumbled upon some Lime Pepper. Lime? Pepper? What? That’s right! I found this little gem in Walmart. It stood out so bright I couldn’t just leave it. Immediately I knew what magic I could create with this intriguing seasoning blend.

I’m not going to make this particular blog a long one, simply because I don’t have shit to talk about and I’ve been sitting on this recipe for like 2 years. Its been long enough. Just try the damn recipe.

salt & pepper, to taste (although I didn’t need any)

To split lobster tails:
Using a knife or kitchen shears, cut the top of the shell, but stop at the tail. Then slice the lobster meat in half, next open the lobster tails like a book.
Brush lobster tails with melted butter and season with lime pepper seasoning blend. Place on grill flesh side down and let cook for about 5-6 mins, then flip to shell side and continue to cook for an additional 5-6 mins.
Brush with honey lime butter during the final minutes of cooking.
