Cook Your Catch: Grilled Lobster

Here's a tasty grilled lobster recipe from Mercury Pro Peter Miller.


National Lobster Day only comes once a year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cook up a fantastic lobster dish year-round. But why wait until you’re back on land to get started. Take a page out of Uncharted Waters with Peter Miller's book and put your boat grill to good use.


  • Lobster tails
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic salt
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Lemon
  • Butter
  • Mac and cheese (or side of your choosing)


Get the grill really hot.

Cut straight up the lobster tails with scissors or a knife and pry the shell apart to release the meat. Follow by giving your tails a quick rinse in the ocean (optional).

Place your lobster tails in a re-sealable plastic bag. Add olive oil and garlic salt and shake it up.

Now to the good part: throw the lobsters on the grill.

And because no meal would be complete without sides, pull out pre-made mac and cheese, pack it into aluminum foil container, and place on the grill to heat up. If mac and cheese isn’t your thing, feel free to substitute for your favorite side.

While your food is cooking, slice a lemon and melt a stick of butter on the grill.

Once the lobster tails have curled up, lightly give each a little cut. Finally, sprinkle parmesan over the lobster to taste.

Pile your food on a plate, add a tablespoon of the melted butter, and squeeze your lemon over top.
