How to make it

  • Place live lobsters into an ice slurry (ice and water mixture) or alternatively place in freezer for 20 minutes or until lobsters are inactive. Cut each lobster in half lengthways, removing organs and digestive tract. Place into large baking dishes, cut side up.
  • Melt butter and stir through garlic, herbs and salt; mix well. Spoon half of the butter mixture over lobster meat and arrange lemon slices around lobsters.
  • Roast in wood fire oven for 15—20 minutes. Remove from oven and brush hot lobsters with remaining herb butter.
  • Serve immediately with a generous squeeze of lemon juice and lots of fresh bread to mop up the juices.
  • Alternatively, preheat oven 250°C and cook lobster for 15 minutes

    Good Golly Molly... I would have no problem with the live little critter... We use gas grills... and put chips on it... think this would work?

    I love lobster but I'm the kind of person who would get invited to someone's house for this dish, see the live lobsters and set them free LOL!

    I have to say though, this dish sounds amazing and I'd love to try it. Wood fire's give such flavor to foods that can't compare to anything else. Great post!
