Do you ever start feeling that your meals are getting boring? I do! When you are trying to come up with different recipes constantly you can really get into a rut. For example; I will start using the same seasonings and ingredients in a large portion of my meals because they have been proven to mesh well, then I will stick with them simply because of ease. I notice this has been happening to me a lot lately and wanted to throw a curve ball at our dinner plates. So I went against some of my rules for cooking lobster. All though I know it can be cooked many different ways, I stick to steaming it. It is so easy to get it perfect that way and while steaming I can make some stock in the process. I also never wrap Lobster because it can easily take on another flavor. So I decided I would broil and wrap a lobster just to challenge myself. I just had to come up with a way to do it without ruining the lobster tails! Enjoy!

2 6 oz Maine lobster tails
2 slices thin sliced smoked bacon (pancetta can be substituted)
2 tbsp Yummy Sauce

2 tbsp Sweet European butter (melted)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp fresh dill
1/8 tsp fresh crack pepper medley
1/8 tsp kosher salt

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and sit to the side until needed.

Remove shells from lobster tails by first using a pair of kitchen scissors to cut away underbelly and tail fins of lobster, then gently pushing away shell until meat comes out easily. Roll lobster tails in marinade and sit on a broiling pan.

Preheat broiler to 500 degrees.

Heat a skillet to medium high and cook both strips of bacon until almost crisping but still flexible (6-8 minutes.) Remove bacon from skillet and sit to the side.

Place lobster tails under broiler and broil for 8 minutes, keeping the oven door cracked open. After 8 minutes remove the lobster tails from the broiler and wrap a slice of cooked bacon around each lobster tail (the reason for precooking the bacon is so that the flavor is not taken on by the lobster meat.) Drizzle 1 tbsp of Yummy sauce over each tail and place back under broiler for 3-4 minutes with oven door closed or until Lobster tails are cooked through. Serve hot and enjoy!
