Food Recipes Lobster Tails With Cilantro Butter 4.7 (3) 1 Review Nothing says “summer” quite like lobster tails, fresh off the grill. At least in the North East, that is. Recreate that salty time of year on the coast—anytime and anywhere—by serving this tasty entrée, which comes together in less than half an hour and requires 10 minutes or less on the grill. Start with four lobster tails (fresh or thawed, if frozen), and a semi-homemade compound butter. You’ll cut the lobster tails in half and grill them, coating them with cilantro butter after you flip them over the flames. Serve alongside fresh corn on the cob, garlic bread, or both.
