Here is a wonderful recipe for grilled lobster tails that is pretty straightforward. What makes this recipe special is my luscious lemon curry butter sauce ( and that the lobster tails were on sale). I made the butter sauce a day ahead and it took only 6 minutes to get the lobster cooked and served. I served the grilled lobster tails with rice pilaf and steamed broccoli ( lightly tossed in more butter). Great for this weekend!
Cut lobster tails in half. Season with salt and pepper. Grill halved lobster tails for 6 minutes. Serve immediately with curry butter.
Lemon Curry Butter
Lemon curry butter can be made a day ahead. Make it a few hours before grilling the lobster tails.

Saute minced shallots in 2 tablespoons of butter for 3 to 4 minutes on medium heat. Add in chill powder, curry powder and salt, saute for 2 minutes. Cool mixture and add to softened butter. Add in lemon juice and crushed fennel seeds. Refrigerate until ready to use. This butter can also be used for other grilled meats and vegetables.
