SMOKING LOBSTER TAILS
Sea salt flakes
Parsley for garnish
Making these lobster tails is incredibly easy. It only takes a few simple steps to create this delicious, smoky lobster feast.
STEP 1: PREP
Preheat the smoker to 350 degrees and soak the banana leaves in hot water to soften them. Meanwhile, cut a slit down the center of the lobster tail shell and gently tug the meat out and over the shell.
STEP 2: MAKE THE COMPOUND BUTTER
Combine the softened butter, crushed garlic, sea salt, smoked paprika, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl, using a spatula to meld thoroughly.
STEP 3: PREPARE THE LOBSTER FOR SMOKING
Brush the prepared lobster tail liberally with the butter mixture, creating a thick layer. Top with lemon slices and shallots, and then wrap it all in the banana leaf.
STEP 4: SMOKE THE TAILS
Place the wrapped lobster tails directly onto the grill grate and smoke for 25 minutes. Check to be sure the lobster is cooked. It should be white with an internal temperature of 140 degrees.
