6 servings (serving size: 1 lobster tail, 2 green onions, and 1 tortilla)

A simple citrus sauce perfectly complements the lobster tails in this easy yet elegant entrée. Serve with warmed tortillas, lightly grilled green onions, and cold Mexican beer for a satisfying meal that's just right for romantic evenings at home or entertaining friends.

Use kitchen shears or a cleaver to cut the rock lobster tails in half. Lightly char green onions alongside the tails on the grill. We like dousing the tails in Mexican hot sauce, such as Cholula, for authentic flavor. Serve with ice-cold Mexican beer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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 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 $$.
