Grilled Split Lobster with Pesto

Grilling lobster can be a little tricky. Keep the claws over the coals and cook the tail indirectly for more even cooking. I generally brush the flesh with oil infused with ginger, garlic, hot chilies and basil, but this simple preparation is an easy way to get you started.

Grilled lobster marries perfectly with a rich Chardonnay, but I’ll save the Chardonnay for the next recipe and opt for a plump white Rhone blend here.

    Wouldn't the Edmunds St. John Syrah (2008) be too tannic for the Salmon dish? By the way, this article comes at the right time for us since we do more fish at this time of the year.
