Grilled Lobster With Seafood Stuffing Recipe (WARNING: Graphic)
First things first, fire up your grill! Place hot coals on two sides of the grill, leaving space in the center over which you’ll be grilling the lobster(s).
Now, time to get started on the stuffing. Position the a cast iron skillet on the grill (above the middle section) and add the unsalted butter, allowing it to melt. Then add the diced onions and the minced garlic, and cook until they become translucent (but not completely brown).
At this point, add the scallops and shrimp to the pan. You only want to warm those up, so keep stirring for 20-30 seconds before adding the next ingredients.
Add crab meat, lemon juice and chopped parsley to the pan, then crumble the Ritz crackers (allowing for large pieces- they don’t have to be very small). Mix the ingredients, then pull the pan off the heat before it starts cooking.
Step two, cooking the lobster.
If you bought live lobsters, the most humane way to kill them is by quickly putting your knife through the brain and slicing forward (the legs might keep moving for a bit, but this is only a port-mortem reflex).
Use your knife to cut the lobster in half down the center. Remove the brains and intestines from the body cavity. Place the two halves on a baking sheet with the cavity facing upwards, and distribute the stuffing between the lobster halves to fill each cavity. Add 2 tablespoons of melted butter on top of the stuffing on each lobster half.
Place the baking sheet on your grill and close the lid. Cook for 20-30 minutes, keeping an eye on the lobster to make it doesn’t burn.
Serve the grilled lobster on a platter, alongside some melted butter for dipping.
