sriracha butter lobster tails over the fire


Lobster tails are one of my favorites to cook over fire. I love to grill them, smoke them and one day I will cook them right on the coals! They usually are lightly covered in seasoning and then lathered in a butter sauce. At least, that is the way I like them!


By adding that Sriracha to the butter sauce will really spike the flavor to a new level. Get some heat from the sriracha and tang from the garlic for a dynamic duo of flavor.


For my Sriracha Butter Lobster Tails, I split them in half in order to lay them flat. You could easily butterfly them and cook indirectly, but I chose not to since I wanted to make them over a campfire.


Lobster does not take a long time to cook; however, it does take longer than shrimp and scallops. Once it is on the grill, you got 5-7 minutes before they are done. So, be ready with all your gear nearby so you do not over cook the Sriracha Butter Lobster Tails.


In the end, these Sriracha Butter Lobster Tails are a perfect flavor for cooking outside right next to your RV.

  1. Oh buddy was this good. I would venture to challenge to see which one is best. I used a little more hot sauce, and 4 cloves of garlic.
    The time was spot on. I sided it with grilled zucchini and corn.
