Grilled Beer Butter Lobster Tails with Thai Chimichurri

Just decide right now to make this. Just trust me, especially if you don’t have a lot of lobster-cooking experience. It’s not hard and you won’t screw it up, I promise. Lobster tails have had all the hard tasks already done for you. All the scary, stare-a-beast-in-the-face-while-you-kill-it, dirty work has already been completed by the time you step into the picture. You buy just the tail, and it’s all ready for you. 

This leaves you with the easy part. Just cut it in half, brush it with some beer butter, and toss it on the grill. Well, don’t literally toss it, you’re not an animal, place it there. PLACE it on the grill and drink your beer and it’ll be almost done by the time you realize what you’re doing. YOU are making yourself something fancy because it’s important to make small occasions, like a Tuesday in the summer, feel important. 

It’s also important to have something to look forward to, so just decide to make this and your whole week just got better.
