Easy to throw together and soooo good for shrimp and prawns as well lobster. Since discovering this recipe I will never grill shellfish any other way.

This one is a winner. It was the first time I cooked rock lobster tail, and I must say it was a great success. The seasoning is subtle and does not overpower the lobster meat, which is what I like about it the most. Thank you.

Great simple way to prepare lobster. I thought the amount of olive oil was a bit overboard so only used about two tablespoons for one tail and it tasted great. Also used a few chili flakes to liven things up a bit!
