  • 2 x garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1/4 c. mild extra-virgin extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 4 x live lobsters - (2 lbs ea) Coarse (kosher) salt to taste


  1. Set broiler rack at least 6 inches from the flame, and heat the broiler. Mix together garlic, extra virgin olive oil and melted butter, and keep hot.
  2. Using a large, sharp chefs knife or possibly 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 possibly 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.
  3. Brush the lobsters liberally with the butter mix, and season with a small healthy pinch of coarse salt.
  4. Broil four min; baste with butter mix, then finish broiling 3 min more. Serve one lobster per person.
  5. This recipe yields 4 servings.
  6. Description: "Broiling concentrates lobsters natural sweet flavor, and butter compliments its richness. If you cannot bring yourself to split a live lobster, have the fishmonger do it for you."
