The Brombergs fondly recall eating steamed lobsters at the beach on Long Island. Their modern twist is grilled lobster with miso butter. Miso brings salty umami notes to the sweet, succulent lobster.


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons red miso (soybean paste)
  • 4 (8-ounce) lobster tails, halved lengthwise
  • Cooking spray
