It doesn’t say in the recipe but we served them with grilled lemon halves like in the picture. That made all the difference in the world. It’s still a little cold so we made them inside but I look forward to the warm weather and trying them on the BBQ

Wow! This recipe was simple yet amazing. I prepared this for a few friends with lobster tails I bought from them and everybody loved them. I will definitely order again and I want to try a few other recipes.
