  • 1/4 cup mild extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

  • Coarse (kosher) salt to taste


Servings 4


Step 1

Set broiler rack at least 6 inches from the flame, and heat the broiler. Mix together garlic, olive oil and melted butter, and keep warm.

Using a large, sharp chefs knife or a Chinese cleaver, hold the lobsters down firmly to a cutting board, and split them in half from head to end. Gently crack the claws by striking them with a meat mallet, small hammer or the spine of the knife. Scoop out the viscera behind the mouth parts, and remove the green roe sacs. Transfer, cut-side up, to broiling pans.

Brush the lobsters liberally with the butter mixture, and season with a small pinch of coarse salt.

Broil four minutes; baste with butter mixture, then finish broiling 3 minutes more. Serve one lobster per person.
