Ingredients

  • 2

    garlic cloves finely chopped

  • 1/4

    cup mild extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1

    tablespoon melted butter

  • 4

    live lobsters - (2 lbs ea)

  • Coarse (kosher) salt to taste

Directions

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. This recipe yields 4 servings.
