Ingredients–
6 rock lobster tails (8 oz. each)
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
2 T. lemon juice
1/2 t. salt
Melted butter or margarine for dipping

Instructions–
If the lobster is frozen, thaw before preparing. Cut the tails in half lengthwise. Remove swimmerettes and sharp edges. Cut six 12 x 12 pieces of heavy aluminum foil and place one lobster tail on each piece. Combine the butter, lemon juice, and salt to create a sauce for basting the lobster meat. After basting the meat, bring the foil up over the lobster and close all edges with tight double folds. Place the packages on a grill with the shell side down about 5 inches from the heat. Cook for 20 minutes. Remove the lobster tails from the foil and cook again on the grill (meat side down) for 2-3 more minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with melted butter. Makes 6 servings.
