Sate Kaffir Butter Lobster Tails

Whether you start with our live local lobsters (in season October – March) or our frozen lobster tails (available year round), these Sate Kaffir Butter Lobster Tails from Wynn’s Kitchen promise to wake up your taste buds! If you can’t find kaffir limes at a specialty produce market, substitute with regular lime juice and use bay leaves or lemongrass.


  • 5 lobster tails, halved
  • 1 stick of salted butter
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp Wynn’s Kitchen Asian Sate Sauce
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 4-5 kaffier lime leaves
  • Salt, pepper
  • Sliced green onions for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Using kitchen scissors, cut the top and bottom of the lobster tail, then use a chef’s knife to cut in half. Place the tails with the meat up and in an oven safe skillet.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush it on the meat of the lobster tails.
  4. Bake the lobster tails for 15 minutes or until they are cooked through (make sure not to overcook).
  5. While the lobster is baking, on low heat melt the remaining butter and add the minced garlic, sate sauce, honey, lime juice, and lime leaves. Cook for 5 minutes and turn off heat.
  6. When the lobster is done, drizzle the butter mixture over the lobster tails.
  7. Garnish with thinly sliced green onion and dash of salt and pepper.
