Grilled Lobsters with Miso-Chile Butter

1 stick unsalted butter, cubed

2 tablespoons white miso

1 tablespoon Sriracha

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus wedges for serving

2 bunches of scallions

1 tablespoon canola oil

Kosher salt


8 long metal skewers

Four 1 1/2-pound lobsters, halved lengthwise, claws detached and reserved

Step 1

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Whisk in the miso, Sriracha and lemon juice. Reserve 1/4 cup of the miso-chile butter for serving.

Step 2

Light a grill. In a large bowl, toss the scallions with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning, until lightly charred and tender, 5 minutes. Chop the scallions and toss with 1 tablespoon of the miso-chile butter.

Step 3

Clean and halve the lobsters. Skewer the lobster bodies from the tail to the head to keep them straight. Brush the lobster meat with 2 tablespoons of the miso-chile butter. Grill the lobster bodies and claws over moderate heat, turning and basting the meat with the remaining miso-chile butter, until the shells are bright red, 7 to 8 minutes for the tails and 12 to 15 minutes for the claws. Remove the skewers.

Step 4

Arrange the lobsters on a platter or plates and scatter the scallions on top. Serve with lemon wedges and the reserved 1/4 cup of miso-chile butter.
