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.
