Grilled Lobster Recipe- Delicious Outdoor Cooking

Today, I’m sharing my grilled lobster recipe.  And no, I don’t typically eat grilled lobster at the campsite, but this week we have been talking about romantic camping trips and grilled lobster is incredibly romantic.  It is a wonderfully rich seafood, which is actually super easy to make.

Grilled lobster is perfect for celebration dinners, romantic dinners or anytime you are craving a great meal whether you are grilling at the campsite or in your back yard.

Of course, cost is usually a concern when it comes to lobster. It is more expensive than most meats and seafood, but cooking it yourself greatly reduces the price. You can buy the lobster tails from the meat counter in your grocery store or look for frozen lobster tails.  And watch for a sale.

Serve your lobster with a baked potato, grilled vegetables, french bread and a salad. Yumm!

I’ll see ya by the campfire.

  1. You’ve inspired me to try something new this weekend (we’re headed to Mistletoe). I never thought of having lobster while camping. Our camping cuisine has been quite lackluster lately…this should spice things up! Nom nom nom…

    • You’ll have to tell me how your lobster turns out. You don’t actually have to keep the shell attached. You can take the meat out of the shell completely and grill it. I like to leave the shell attached because that is what they do at the restaurants and it looks pretty. Have fun at Mistletoe!

  2. These look so yummy! It’s a must do for our next camping trip! Will definitely take pics and make notes to share with you! Thanks for the great tip!
