  1. Prepare the lobster to pack instructions. Preheat the grill to high. Mix the butter, paprika, dill, and lemon zest in a bowl. Spread evenly over the lobster meat.
  2. Transfer to a baking tray and grill for 3-5 mins until heated through. Twist off the claws, then break them into their natural sections. Crack the shell by tapping it with a nut cracker or sharp, heavy knife. Remove the meat with a fork. Serve with the lemon wedges.
