Grilled Marinated Chicken & Buttery Lobster Tail

Lobster Tail

Yields: 2 serving
2 – 3oz Lobster Tail
4oz butter
1 lemon wedge
1/4 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Cook a raw lobster tail in salted boiling water. Cook it for 1 minute per ounce. (If you bought a 3 ounce tail, then it will need to boil for 3 minutes.) 

Place the tails in an ice bath to stop the cooking. Once cool to the touch, with a pair of kitchen scissors, cut from the down to the little fins at the bottom of the lobster. Wrap the tail in a towel and squeeze it with your hands until you hear the shell crack. Now separate the shell from the meat.

Heat the butter in a pot, but be mindful of the temperature. You’re poaching the tail, not boiling it. Once the butter is hot, add lemon wedge and seasonings. Stir to combine, and drop in the lobster tail. Keep the tail in the butter mixture for 2 minutes, basting frequently.

Serve with the marinated chicken breast, steamed broccoli and roasted potatoes.

Marinated Chicken

Combo oil, canola and olive
1/4 Cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp oregano 
1/2 tsp basil
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Instructions 

Combine all the ingredients together. Pour marinade over chicken breasts and marinate for 4 hours. 

Heat a cast iron skillet grill pan to a medium-high heat. Place the chicken breast in the pan away from you. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Let rest for about 3 minutes before serving.
