Lobster: BBQ Cooking Method
Alongside your lobster received in your box, you will need: vegetable oil, salt and lemon & garlic butter (optional).
Canadian lobster has a sweet, light flavour with a dense texture. With this in mind, our aim when cooking the lobster on the grill is to allow its natural sweetness to be showcased, with a slight smokiness.
Lemon & Garlic Butter (Optional)
Cooking The Lobster
Fill a large pot with water. Your lobster needs to be able to fit fully into this pot.
Lightly salt and bring to the boil
Place the whole lobster in the water and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
Cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from water and allow to drain in a colander.
Preparing The Sauce
While cooling the lobster, prepare your lemon & garlic butter: To prepare your lemon & garlic butter, simply heat the sauce in a saucepan until it comes to a gentle simmer – do not let it boil.
Once simmering, carefully transfer the sauce to a blender (or use a stick blender) on low until the sauce comes together.
Next, transfer to a serving jug. Do not reheat.
Plating The Lobster
Once the lobster has cooled slightly, cut the lobster in half with a knife and crack the claws using the provided crackers. Using the pick pull the meat out of the claws.
Plate the lobster and enjoy with the lemon and garlic butter and a lemon wedge.
