Grilled Lobster with Tomato/Lime Butter

Nothing spells summer more than lobster….grilled…poached….anyway you can think of. This is easy, elegant and wonderful to present to company.


  • 4- 2 lb. lobsters, fresh as can be

Preheat the barbecue and while that is getting warmed up, make the tomato/lime butter and put a large pot of salted water on high to boil.

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. tomato paste
  • 1 large lime, zested and juiced

In a saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients, stirring well to combine. Set aside.

Drop the lobsters in the boiling,  salted water. Return to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the water and cut down the center of the back, lengthwise. Place shell side down on the grill and brush the lobster flesh with the tomato/lime butter.

Serve immediately with a crisp, chilled salad, glasses of chilled white wine, candles burning and great company around the table. Sounds pretty good to me.
