  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp crushed red chilli flakes
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Live Eastern Rock Lobster
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil


Step 1

Combine butter, parsley, chilli flakes, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Using a cleaver, split lobster in half lengthwise through it’s head and tail. Scoop out and discard the yellow- green tomalley and break off claws.

Step 3

Transfer lobster halves, shell side down, to a baking sheet; crack claws and place them on the baking sheet.

Step 4

Drizzle halves and claws with oil and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Heat a charcoal grill or set a gas grill to high. Place lobster halves, flesh side down, and claws on the hottest part of the grill; cook until slightly charred, 2-3 minutes. Flip lobster over and spread it with the garlic-parsley butter; continue grilling until lobster meat is tender, for approximately 3-5 minutes more.
