Grilled Lobster with Melted Herb Butter

Father’s Day is this Sunday, so whip out the plastic and buy him lobster. Pair it with a nice steak and he might put you back in his will!
Grilled Lobster with Melted Herb Butter
1 stick melted butter
Juice from 1 lemon, no seeds
Zest from 1 lemon, no pith
2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives, plus more for garnish
2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
2 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt, to taste
4 (8-oz.) lobster tails
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Lemon wedges, for serving
Preheat a grill or bbq to medium heat.
In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, lemon juice, zest, chives, parsley, garlic, and salt.
Using kitchen shears, cut top of lobster shell from meaty portion of tail. Using a knife, cut halfway through meat down the center, without cutting all the way through. Insert a skewer lengthwise through the lobster to keep lobster from curling up when cooked.
Brush all over with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill flesh side down until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Flip lobster and spoon butter mixture on flesh side. Grill until just cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
Remove lobster from grill and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Serve with lemon wedges.
