    Get ready for Grilled Baked Stuffed Lobster and the best lobster dinner you’ve ever had. Start out with a pair of fresh four-pound live Maine lobsters, a hot charcoal grill and get ready to prepare a lobster feast you will never forget.

    Just in time for Memorial Day Weekend

    This recipe is best with cold water lobster, which means lobster from Maine. If you can’t buy jumbo lobster near your home, you can have Maine lobster delivered right to your door anywhere in the country from a lobster online service. This recipe is easy to prepare and takes less than an hour. The result will be the best baked stuffed lobster you have ever had.

    Gather up the ingredients for a lobster feast for two to four people:

    • Two fresh four-pound Maine lobsters
    • 10 15-count large fresh sea scallops
    • Eight to 10 large raw shrimp, about ¼ pound (optional)
    • 8-16 oz. Maine crab meat (16 oz. of not using shrimp)
    • Two sticks unsalted butter
    • One lemon
    • Four shallots or 1 large red onion
    • 2 cloves of garlic
    • Parsley 3 sprigs
    • Sea salt
    • Black pepper corn
    • 1 sleeve Ritz Crackers
    Baked Stuffed

    Light a hooded charcoal grill to 350 degrees.  Prepare the ingredients:

    • Chop the shallots or onion into small pieces
    • Chop up the 2 cloves of garlic and mince
    • chop up the parsley
    • Slice the scallops into ¼ chunks
    • If using shrimp, peel and slice the shrimp into ¼ chunks

    Prepare the lobster:

    • Place the live lobster on a flat surface, stomach side down
    • Kill the lobster by pushing a large chef’s knife into the brain
    • Remove elastics from claws
    • Using the knife, split the lobster all the way down the middle
    • Remove the intestinal sac, brain, tomalley and roe with fingers or paper towel — do not use water to rinse the lobster as this will remove the juices
    • Optionally you may save the roe and tomalley and add it to the stuffing
    • Crack the claws with the handle of the knife

    • Place pans in middle of grill and spoon the stuffing with melted butter
    • Close the hood and cook 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown
