Lobster -- Baja Style

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

This recipe comes from my Cruising Cuisine cookbook. While cruising in the Sea of Cortez we used this simple method to prepare the local lobster and it was magnificent (and so easy)! Our lobsters were moderate sized, so if using large lobsters adjust the butter and garlic accordingly.

Where I live there has been an abundance of lobster tails and I have gotten up close and personal with this shellfish but I had not been able to find a tasty uncomplicated recipe. This is what I was looking for. I will forever use this recipe in the oven. Next time we camp I will cook it over a grill.
