Cedar Planked Grilled Lobster Tails
The charcoal grill is a great place to prepare lobster tails. This cedar planked grilled lobster tail recipe is easy and full of flavor. The folks over at Outdoor Gourmet show us how it is done!
Lobster Tails on a Cedar Plank with Chive Lemon Aioli
1 6″ x12″ cedar plank
5 6-8oz raw lobster tails
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Fresh chives roughly chopped
Salt and pepper
Soak cedar grilling plank in water for at least one hour.
Preheat grill to 400Fº.
Turn the lobster tails leg side up and carefully cut down the center cutting only the shell. Season with salt and pepper.
Place the lemon slices on the plank and sprinkle with chives. Place lobster legs side down on top and move to the grill, closing the lid.
After 10-12 minutes the plank will be smoking and the lobster meat will be firm in a bright red shell. Remove from grill.
The tail meat can be pulled out of the shell after a few minutes to cool. We ate ours with Chive lemon aioli.
Chive lemon aioli
1 egg + 1 yolk
1 cup olive oil
Juice of half a lemon
Handful fresh chives
Pinch of salt
Place eggs in a food processor and blitz for 30 seconds, with the machine still running very slowly add the oil in a thin stream. When the oil is incorporated the aioli will have thickened. Add lemon juice, chives and salt. Blitz until smooth.
