Grilled Lobster Tail

When I think of lobster tail, I think of a quick way to weight gain. But, it isn't the lobster that's so fattening, it's all that butter sauce! This recipe uses a healthy grilling technique to cook the lobster, then bathes the cooked seafood with delightful lemon. This makes an especially easy, especially healthy alternative, and especially tasty dish!


1 lobster tail
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges


Preheat grill. Rub grates with oil to preven sticking. Lay lobster tail on grill, flesh side down, and grill for about 5 minutes. Turn over, and grill for an additional 5 minutes. The lobster is done when the flesh is opaque and firm. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Serves 1 - 2

Stealthy Cooking Tip: Lobster is one of the leanest forms of protein, containing less saturated fat, calories, and cholesterol then most other sources including beef, pork, or chicken. Eating lobster with butter may be delicious, but it's overrated. Use the freshest lemon you can find, and try a delicious squeeze of lemon juice.
