I actually double the marinade if making it for just my husband and I as we love it so much. When we serve this for guests we keep the lobster as the main attraction, and pair it with a simple green salad with a light dressing, crusty bread, melted butter in heated ramekins for dipping, and a bottle of cold Chardonnay.

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and stir in the lemon juice, orange zest, ginger, chili powder, and bitters. Simmer gently for 2 minutes, then set aside. Cut away the membrane on the underside of the lobster tails, and insert a metal skewer into each one. This will prevent them from curling up as they cook.
  3. Cook the lobster tails shell-side up on the preheated grill for 10 minutes, then turn the tails over, and spoon the butter sauce over the meat. Continue cooking until the meat is no longer translucent in the middle, about 10 minutes more.

One of the best Lobster Tail recipes I've tried to date. I cut the bitters and ginger in half, just because I don't care for an excess of either one of them, but after eating it neither one was overwhelming. The next time I will add the full amount of both off them. Great job Kerri

Lovely lobster dish on a hot summer night. Just a very nice difference with the orange zest. Apparently, I left my skewers when we moved , so I had to use wooden skewers. They worked fine. I used 12 oz. tails so the cooking time was about 8 minutes longer over indirect heat. Didn't want to burn!!! Doubled the sauce so I had enough for basting and brushing. Thanks to KerriJ for this beautiful and simple recipe.

This was easy and delicious. I didn't have aromatic bitters, so I eliminated it. My husband thought it was the best prepared lobster he'd ever had!
