    I found this recipe that I had written down probably when I was in my late teens, so I'm not sure of its source. It's an quick and easy recipe...delicious too.

      This recipe is great!! I made this for my Husband on the 4th of July. Due to his dietary restrictions I substituted 4 tablespoons of olive oil for butter. Also we added 3 more cloves of garlic, crushed as well as four 4 extra teaspoon of green onions to compensate for the lack of butter. To my surprise it was absolutely delicious. I can only imagine it's even more decadent with butter. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      The only thing DH & I do differently is to set the lobster on top of the shell & we do not cover w/foil. We broil them about 8" from the heat for 4 min. & then baste & then back in for another 4 min. We use the same butter mixture for dipping - but I personally think that they don't need any additional "dredging" but DH dredges on.... Super YUM & super easy.

      Delicious! I used unsalted butter (it's what I had) and won't do that again. Even adding a bit of salt doesn't give the butter the same rich flavor. The meat was yummy and the tails looked so pretty with a bit of BBQ char. So good and so easy!!
