Grilled Maine Lobster

one 2-lb. whole Maine lobster
3/4 C. olive oil
2 T. garlic, minced
3 T. fresh basil, chopped
1 T. lemon zest
2 t. red chili flakes
2 T. red onion, minced
1/4 C. lemon juice

Pick a lively lobster, one that flips his tail a lot when removed from the tank. Ask your fish monger to do the dirty work of killing the lobster.

Remove and crack the claws, then slit the body. Mix the olive oil, basil, lemon zest, red chili flakes, red onion and lemon juice in a bowl. Add lobster to the bowl and mix. Marinate for four hours in the refrigerator.

Remove lobster pieces from the marinade and place on the grill, meat side up. Cook, turning claws and bodies once, until meat is opaque. A good guide for grilling lobster is seven minutes per pound.
