6 (8-ounce) rock or spiny lobster tails
12 green onions
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash of hot sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons butter, melted
6 (6-inch) flour tortillas
Lime wedges (optional)
How to Make It
To prepare lobster, cut each lobster tail in half lengthwise. Coat lobster tails and onions with cooking spray. Place lobster tails, cut sides down, on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes. Turn lobster; grill 5 minutes. Place onions on grill rack; grill 3 minutes or until tender.
To prepare sauce, combine rind and next 7 ingredients (through garlic) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Gradually add butter, stirring constantly with a whisk. Drizzle sauce over cut sides of lobster tails.
Warm tortillas according to package directions. Serve with lobster and lime wedges, if desired.
Publix had a sale on tails, so for something different, I decided to get a few. I had no idea how to even cook lobster tails so I came here and found this recipe. It sounded so yummy and right up my family's and my taste buds, so I decided to make the tails using this recipe. Boy was I glad I did! This was a perfect sauce!! It was so yummy. I made watermelon-cucumber salad, garlic-lemon grilled corn (both recipes on myrecipe.com) and butter-garlic pasta to go with the tails. Everything complimented each other so nicely. Perfect meal for a summer evening.
This was my first time making lobster and WOW. It was so easy and didn't take very long to make at all! Served with the recommended flour tortillas and charred onions along with fresh fruit salad. YUM!
I saved this recipe from my Sept. 08 issue for almost two years before I made it, and learned we had been missing out! I've made it using fresh lobster tail, frozen lobster tail and frozen chopped lobster tail and of course fresh is the best. The flavors are great - citrusy and buttery, we love them with fresh corn tortillas and cold mexican beers. Reduce the recipe for two people and save some $$.
