Stir together butter, lemon zest, and juice, 2 tablespoons rosemary, 1 tablespoon chives, 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, garlic, salt, and black pepper in small bowl. Spoon butter mixture over lobster.
Transfer lobster tails to hot skillet. Grill 12 to 15 minutes or until lobster reaches 145 degrees.
