              Fancy Grilled Lobster Tails Step 1

Prepare the potato wedges. Wash potatoes, prick each with a fork and wrap with plastic wrap. Microwave at high (1,200W) for about 6 -7 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside to cool.

              Fancy Grilled Lobster Tails Step 2

Prepare the lobster tails. Using kitchen shears, cut the top of each lobster tail shell. Using a knife, cut halfway through the meat of the lobster. Be careful not to cut through the bottom shell.

              Fancy Grilled Lobster Tails Step 3

Cut and remove the top of each by forming a ā€œVā€ shape that points toward the tail fins. Place your finger between the shell and meat to separate the shell from the meat. 

For each tail, insert a wooden or metal skewer lengthwise to prevent it from curling up while grilling.

Brush the meat with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop the center leaving 1/2 inch layer from the skin. Brush potato with olive oil, making sure to coat all around. Set aside.

Make the butter sauce. In a small microwavable bowl, place all ingredients for butter sauce. Microwave at high (1,200W) for 20-30 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir to combine and set aside.

Preheat the Indoor Electric Grill at HI for 6 minutes or until the operation light turns off. Place lobsters on the grill, meat side down, place potato skin, cut side down and reduce heat to MED. Please be careful of the heated grill.

Grill lobster and potato skins until lightly charred about 8-10 minutes, then flip over and dollop a teaspoonful of butter sauce from step 6. Fill each potato skin with cheese and bacon.

Grill an additional 8-10 minutes, cut side up or until cooked through. Turn off the grill, transfer lobster and potato skins to a plate. Remove skewers from the lobsters. Garnish the dish with parsley. Top each potato skin with a dollop of sour cream and chives.
