When your lobster is fresh, let it be the star of your dish and stay simple.
2 kilos lobster
20 cloves garlic, chopped
sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to season
butter and garlic for brushing
juice of half a lemon
chopped parsley for sprinkling
melted butter and lemon wedges (optional)
1 Melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 3 to 4 minutes until fragrant (it should not even start to color at all). Take pan off the heat.
2 Cut the lobster in half lengthwise and rinse with water very briefly. Season generously with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Brush with butter and garlic mixture, reserving some for later.
3 Put the lobster halves on the hot fire, with shells down and cover for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the lobsters. Cook with meat facing down for another 1 to 2 minutes. Turn lobsters over again with the meat facing up and brush once more with the butter and garlic mixture. Continue until the meat is just cooked and opaque, do not overcook. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with lemon juice and chopped parsley. Serve immediately. Serve with additional melted butter and lemon wedges, if desired.
