Surf & Turf

If you decide to stay in for Valentine’s Day or just snowed in (like I am), this Surf & Turf would be a great meal for two. I found this recipe on Reddit, it looked so good I had to share it with you. 


1/2 lb shrimp 

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil 

1/2 shallot, thinly sliced 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth 

2 tablespoons butter 

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice 

Salt and pepper, to taste 

Dash of red pepper flakes, optional 

2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley 

2 6-8oz filet steaks

2 tablespoons each butter & olive oil 

2 Rosemary sprigs 

Salt and pepper, to taste 

Shrimp Directions: 

In a large skillet on med/high heat add the olive oil, when hot add the sliced shallots and garlic. Sauté until shallots have softened, about 1 minute. Add in the wine or chicken broth, butter and lemon juice cook until reduced by 1/2 then add in the shrimp, salt and pepper, to taste and the red pepper flakes, if using. Cook until the shrimp turn opaque (pink), about 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat. 

Remove steaks from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking and preheat oven to 400F. Preheat your cast iron skillet until hot (test with a drop of water, if sizzles, it’s ready) add oil. Season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper, to taste. When oil is hot add the steaks and place the rosemary sprigs next to them. Sear steaks 2 minutes per side. Add a tablespoon each on top of each steak and place the cast iron skillet in the oven and cook to desired temperature, 5 minutes for medium rare. Take skillet out of oven and place steaks on a serving plate. Cover with foil for 5 minutes to let steaks rest. Top each steak with shrimp and parsley.
