Lobster on the Barbie

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by TheDancingCook

This the only way we make our tails. We even freeze our buns off in the winter time, cooking these tails out on the patio grill.

These were really good, simple to make, not a bunch of steps to follow. I used unsalted butter as we like the taste of the lobster over the taste of salt froam salted butter. Will make these again.
