Grilled Spiny Lobster


  • 4 spiny lobster tails, thawed if frozen
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Using kitchen shears, cut through the top of each lobster tail shell lengthwise down the center. Use your fingers to gently pull apart the shell to expose the lobster meat, being careful not to pull it out of the shell.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, chopped parsley, paprika, salt, and pepper.

  3. Brush the spiny lobster tails with the olive oil mixture, making sure to coat both sides well.

  4. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the lobster tails, flesh side down, onto the grill grates.

  5. Cook the lobster tails for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the flesh is opaque and lightly charred.

  6. Remove the grilled spiny lobster tails from the grill and serve hot, garnished with lemon wedges.
