Grilled Lobster- Cuban Style! – Chef’s Day Off

Grilled Lobster- Cuban Style! – Chef’s Day Off

As a professional Chef, I am usually the one doing the cooking during a party at my home but I am fortunate to have a husband who is a master griller and loves to BBQ! So, besides a small amount of prep work, he created this masterpiece of a lobster bbq for the 4th of July!

Bob is famous for his annual Cuban Lobster Grill and I am happy to have yet another year of this amazing feast. I made the avocado & tomato salad and he did the rest. Lucky me! You’ll try this decadent meal just once in your life. We pop some bubbly while the grilling is going on for extra fun & celebration! This is an annual tradition we have done for numerous years and I look forward to many more! Plus, it really is a “Chef’s Day Off” for me and that’s a bonus!
