As far as seafood goes, lobster is the cream of the crop. Recognised as a more decadent member of the seafood family, the sumptuous meat is perfect for the hot weather and whether enjoyed as a main or a starter is always a treat!

This sumptuous Grilled Lobster with Garlic-Parsley Butter recipe makes the most of the crustaceans tantalising flavours and is cooked via a flash-grill method and then poached in its own shell in a sea of melted garlic parsley butter!

The garlic and parsley butter mix is a fantastic accompaniment to the lobster meat that will leave your taste buds singing out for me! We recommend pairing the lobster with a fresh, leafy green salad!
