Freshly ground black pepper
2 live lobsters (about 500g each)
1⁄4 cup olive oil
What to do:
In a bowl combine butter, parsley, chilly flakes, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper and set aside.
Using a knife, split the lobster in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the yellow-green tomalley and break off claws.
Transfer lobster halves, shell side down, to a baking sheet and crack the claws and place them on the baking sheet.
Drizzle halves and claws with oil, and season with salt and pepper.
Heat a charcoal grill, place lobster halves, flesh side down, and claws on the hottest part of the grill, and cook until slightly charred, for 2-3 minutes.
Flip the lobster over and using a spoon, spread lobster with the garlic-parsley butter, and continue grilling for 3-5 minutes until lobster meat is tender.
Serve with a side salad and mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
