  • Combine melted butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, ginger, paprika, and hot sauce.
  • Brush the both sides of steaks with olive oil, liberally rub with grill seasoning, and sprinkle with worcestershire sauce.
  • Place a metal skewer through the length of each lobster (keeps them from curling while grilling), and brush with butter sauce; place on grill shell side up, and close lid.
