Recipe courtesy of Tiffani Thiessen


  • 2- 8 ounce rib eye filets
  • 1 fresh, live Maine lobster, about 1 1/2 pounds, split in half
  • 2 dozen fresh shrimp, shells removed

Chimichurri Sauce:

  • ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh oregano, chopped
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 2 cloves garlic; minced
  • ¼  cup olive oil
  • juice of ½ lime
  • salt and pepper
  • pinch of red pepper flakes


Preheat grill to high heat.

Brush the the lobsters and filets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place filets on grill and cook for about 7 minutes per side, for medium rare. Place lobsters, meat side down, and grill for 3-4 minutes. Then flip and grill on shell for an additional 4-5 minutes.

For the chimichurri sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl and stir to fully incorporate. You can also use a blender and pulse lightly. Set aside.

Serves 2-4
