Inspired by the flavors of New Orleans, our Grilled Red Snapper with Spicy Lobster Sauce kicks your seafood game up a notch. This easy-to-make dish has a complex flavor profile with sweet, tender lobster and a rich and creamy sauce made with white wine, tomatoes and bold Creole seasoning for a touch of Cajun heat.

We made this recipe on the Cruise Gas Grill, but you can make it on your grill.
