Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 2


1.5 kgs of bugs or lobsters
2 tbsps of salted butter
1/2 lemon
1 large clove of garlic (roughly chopped)


- Use the largest knife in the kitchen and a mullet to break the shell from the top and split each bug in half lengthwise (see photo).
- Place carefully on a baking tray meat-side up and broil for 10 minutes, until the meat starts to turn brownish.
- While the bugs are broiling, put butter, lemon, garlic and pepper in a small saucepan and low heat until all the butter melts. Once the butter has melted, take off heat and let cool to get a creamy consistency.
- Meat will come right off the shell of the bugs and use butter sauce for dipping
