Cedar Planked Lobster

Cedar Planked Lobster Tails

Serve these delicious cedar planked lobster tails with a lemon aioli dressing for a home-run meal.



  1. Soak cedar grilling plank in hot tap water for around 15 minutes. Preheat grill to 400Fº.
  2. Turn lobster tails leg side up and carefully cut down the center cutting only the shell. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place lemon slices on the plank and sprinkle with chives. Place lobster legs side down on top of lemon slices and move to the grill, closing the lid.
  4. After 10-12 minutes the plank will be smoking and the lobster meat will be firm in a bright red shell. Remove from grill.
  5. The tail meat can be pulled out of the shell after a few minutes to cool. We ate ours with Chive lemon aioli.
