Nutrition information, American recipes


  • 4 (about 150g each) green (uncooked) frozen lobster tails, thawed
  • 60g (3 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 1 orange, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill


  • Step 1
    Preheat grill on medium-high. Line a grill tray with foil.
  • Step 2
    Use kitchen scissors to cut down lengthways either side of each lobster tail on the underside and then gently pull away the soft, flexible shell. This will expose the meat, which will remain in the body shell.
  • Step 3
    Combine the butter, orange rind, 2 tablespoons of the orange juice, mustard and dill in a small bowl or jug and mix well.
  • Step 4
    Place the lobster tails, shell-side up, onto the lined tray. Place under preheated grill and cook for 4 minutes or until the shells turn orange. Turn the lobster tails over, brush well with the butter mixture and cook for a further 3 to 4 minutes, brushing liberally with the butter mixture frequently or until the flesh is no longer translucent.
  • Step 5
    Serve immediately with boiled or roasted potatoes, a green salad and lime wedges.
