Butter and Garlic Grilled Lobster Tacos with Spicy Green Sauce

These grilled lobster tacos, are swimming in a garlic butter sauce, and topped with a spicy serrano pepper green sauce.

They’re highly addicting, so you better sell you stock in doge coin to fund you’re new lobster habit!

I’ve made a HUGE mistake. I’ve introduced my children to lobster and the LOVE IT! At least the way I’ve prepared them.

I took the meat from 2 large lobster tails, seasoned in a little salt and pepper. Then I basted them in clarified butter with garlic that was sauteed in them.

Squeeze a little lemon on top of these grilled lobster tails and on their own they’re out of this world!

So to take these grilled lobster tacos to the next level, I made a quick green sauce similar to what I use on my chicken saltados recipe.

It’s spicy, savory and will last a good week. It’s great on everything and give these tacos a little taste of my favorite Peruvian restaurant.

I’ve also come to realize I make a crapton of taco recipes. I probably should make it a category.

But when tacos are yeet litty fire, I could figuratively eat tacos everyday.

I like tacos, is what I’m trying to say.

If you cant find a good deal on lobster tails for these grilled lobster tacos I highly recommend langostinos. Up front they may cost a little more if you’re buying in bulk, but you get way more meat so a lot of bang for your buck!
