  • 3 Green Bay Lobsters from Australian Bay Lobsters , also known as bugs
  • 150 g Salted butter
  • 1 sprig Rosemary
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 tsp Chopped garlic
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Chilli flakes, optional


  • 1)

    Pop 150g of butter into a saucepan with a sprig of rosemary (keep the end out so you can hold onto it to use as your brush later), the zest of 1/2 a lemon, a couple of cracks of pepper and a heaped teaspoon of chopped garlic.

  • 2)

    Melt the butter down on the stove top.

  • 3)

    While your butter is melting, get a sharp knife and cut the lobster down the middle in half.

  • 4)

    Using your rosemary sprig as a brush, paint some of your melted butter mix onto the meat side of the lobster then place cut side down onto either a pan on high heat or on a scorching hot BBQ.

  • 5)

    Cook for approx. 4 mins on that side, then flip them over and paint again with the garlic butter.

  • 6)

    Cook for approx. 2 mins on second side.

  • 7)

    Drizzle the rest of your butter over the top and finish with a squeeze of lemon, a sprinkle of salt and some chilli flakes (optional).
