  • 2 Whole Lobster cut in half
  • 1.5 tbsp of your Favorite Seafood Seasoning
  • 2 tsp of Canola Oil
Jalapeno Lime Butter:
  • ½ cup of Butter
  • 6 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1 Jalapeno diced
  • 1 Lime juiced
Garnish & Sides:
  • Chopped Cilantro for garnish
  • Mexican Crema for garnish
  • Cotija Cheese for beans
  • Refried Beans
  • White Rice
  1. If not already done, dispatch your lobster and remove everything except for the meat. Lather your lobster in canola oil then thoroughly season with your favorite seafood seasoning (I love the seafood seasoning from spiceology!). Set the lobster aside until ready to cook.
  2. Preheat two charcoal chimneys with real lump charcoal until they are glowing red and white hot. Dump your charcoal into one pile for direct coal cooking.
  3. Carefully blow off the loose ash from the top of the coals and set your lobsters done, meat side towards the coals. Cook each side for 2-2.5 minutes or until they are 135F internal (ideally slightly white and no longer translucent). As the lobsters cook, heat up a basting skillet with the jalapeno lime butter ingredients. Let cook until fully melted. Once the lobster and butter are cooked, pull off and rest for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Garnish your lobster with cilantro and Mexican Crema. Serve with a side of refried beans, rice and limes. Cheers and enjoy!
