3 stalks of celery, chopped

½ red onion, julienned

2 tablespoons of chopped parsley (fresh mint or basil optional)

3 tablespoons honey (molasses optional)

3-4 cloves of garlic smashed

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon coarse black pepper

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon coarse black pepper

Preparing The Lobster For The Grilled Mediterranean Lobster Salad

1. Parboil the lobster tails (in salted water!), extract the meat from the shells and then marinade them for at least an hour in the refrigerator.

2. Preheat the grill to 500F.

3. Grill both sides of the tails for 2-3 minutes to achieve a nice caramelized color. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes to cool.

Making The Grilled Mediterranean Lobster Salad

1. To make the salad dressing, vigorously mix the olive oil and lemon with a pinch of salt and pepper.

2. Now, place the celery, red onions and parsley into a salad bowl. Remove the lobster tails from the refrigerator and cut into 1-inch pieces. Add the lobster pieces and then add the salad dressing. Now toss and serve. Enjoy
