    Chef Ray Hayes demonstrates how to make grilled lobster.

    Ray Hayes: Hello, my name is Ray Hayes. I am the Executive Chef here. You are watching my series on how to prepare a lobster and now I am going to show how to to grill the lobster. We got stuff, boiled and broiled, now we are going to do one grilled up here, see what we have come up with. Just take our lobster, put a little butter on them and you want to turn this lobster, these shells will burn pretty quick, so you want to turn the lobster up so the shell is on there. So the meat gets on there, really on this again. The lobster is already cooked, so you just want to put a little another different flavor on it.

    So you are going to do the charred flavor of the butter on the lobster tail, if the tail comes apart from the shell, that is okay, it is still going to go back on the same plate. So we are already starting to get little marks on there, here we go. The only thing you got to watch on this is to make sure you don't burn the shell because the shell smells not if even if you burn it, they have carotene in them. That is really all it takes, you got a nice lobster already cooked, now we have got a broiled tail to go with that lobster, put a little bit of butter on there, ready to go, broiled lobster.

    So there we go, grilled lobster. Now if you are a purist and you like your lobster just boiled, that is what we have here, just a boiled lobster, a little drawn butter and lemon. We have also taken another lobster, boiled it then we split the lobster, filled it with the crab shrimp and Brie cheese stuffing with a little fresh dill. This has been baked in the oven after that. It is already cooked, so it only takes 10 or 15 minutes after it comes out of the water. This one on the other half of this lobster, we took this and brushed it with a little scented or herbed butter and we put that right on the grill.

    So now you have a grilled lobster, a stuffed lobster and a boiled lobster, all three of them are very, very nice, this one is for the purist, this one for the elegant people who like the cheese and crab and shrimp and lobster and this one for those to have a barbecue. Throw on a corn or cob or some baked beans and you have got a very, very nice little summer meal. So this is our lobster dishes for you. Thank you very much.
