Instructions

  1. Stir together butter, tarragon, garlic and tabasco. Season with sea salt.
  2. Prepare and heat up the grill before cooking. You can also use a frying pan or the oven (440°F/225°C), preferably with the grilling function on.
  3. Rinse and clean the asparagus. Go for thick spears instead of skinny ones. Brush with oil, salt and pepper. Place on grill for a few minutes, until lightly charred. Use a gridiron for best results.
  4. Divide lobster tail lengthwise with a sharp knife. Remove intestines and stomach.
  5. Spread some tarragon butter on the lobster meat. Place lobster on grill flesh side down. Grill for 2-3 minutes if raw or 30 seconds if pre-cooked. It's ready when the lobster meat is white, grilling time depends on size and grill type.
  6. Serve with parmesan, a dollop of tarragon butter and asparagus.

    Where are the carbs coming from in this recipe? I've searched each ingredient and cannot find more than a couple carbs from the asparagus.
