Cooking frozen Maine lobster tails on the grill is easy and great for camping, weekends at the beach house, or summer nights on the patio.
Maine Lobster Tails
STEP 1: Thaw and defrost your lobster tails ( see below)
Step 1: Grab your Maine lobster tails and cut away the outside membrane with scissors.
Step 2: Loosen/separate the meat from the shell with your fingers.
Step 3: Place each lobster tail on a piece of foil that is large enough to wrap.
Step 4: Sprinkle each lobster tail with salt, pepper, lemon juice and a little butter.
Step 5: Fold over the foil and seal the ends so the juice will remain inside.
Step 6: Place foil packets on the grill with low heat for 20-25 minutes. Close the lid and grill until the lobster meat is firm and opaque.
*Thawing your Maine lobster tails:
Option A: Thaw your lobster tails by placing in the refrigerator overnight.
Option B: If you need to thaw your Maine lobster tails on the same day, place the tails in a sealed plastic bag and submerge in cold water. Change the water every 15 minutes for 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.
Option C: If you’re in a major rush you can dethaw your lobster tails in a microwave. Set your microwave to defrost. Set the time on your microwave to allow 3 minutes per tail. We don’t recommend this way because you can easily cook your lobsters in the microwave as well. So be vigilant and defrost in 2 min increments if you’re tails aren’t completely defrosted.
