The Best Surf and Turf Dinner (Steak & Shrimp)

video content Image generated by Wilowrid

Surf and Turf is the perfect dinner for two .

Although you can scale it up to feed more people .

But imagine tender juicy filet mignon shrimp in a garlic rosemary butter .

But I don't need to tell you .

Let me show you .

Hey , everybody .

It's Natasha of Natasha's kitchen dot com .

Today we're making steak and shrimp also known as Surf and Turf .

This is absolutely a restaurant quality dish .

It takes less than 30 minutes to make and it is packed with flavor .

It's so juicy and tender and you're gonna love that butter sauce .

You'll just want every drop from the pan .

I love to pour it over the steak and shrimp at the end and I am so hungry .

So let's get started .

Every time we post a new recipe , you'll need two filet mignon steaks each about 1.5 inches thick .

Just before you start cooking , you'll want to pat them dry with paper towels , then season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper .

Keep in mind if you're not able to get a filet mignon , you can substitute the steaks with rib eye or New York steak .

Be sure to season both sides of the steak .

I'm using a total of one teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of black pepper .

Once the seasoning is on , lightly , massage it into your steaks .

I also like to roll the sides of the steak on the plate to pick up any leftover salt and pepper .

I'm using 12 ounces of large shrimp .

These are peeled and deveined and I've left the tails on because I think it looks prettier thoroughly .

Pat those dry with paper towels , then season lightly with just a quarter teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper .

Stir that together to combine .

I'm gonna quickly wash my hands and it's time to hit the stove place a large heavy skillet .

I love using my cast iron pan over medium high heat .

Once the skillet is hot and you see it starting to smoke , add half a tablespoon of light olive oil and swirl to coat the pan .

Add the steaks to your hot skillet and let them sear for a good four minutes without turning them .

You want them to develop a beautiful golden brown crust , then flip them over and let them continue to sear on the second side for about 3 to 4 minutes .

Once you've gotten a beautiful sear on both sides , use some tons to turn the steaks onto their sides to render the white fat and sear the edges .

This takes about 30 to 60 seconds per edge to ensure they're perfectly cooked through to your liking .

You'll want to use an instant read thermometer .

Now , this is our favorite thermometer .

I use it for all of my meats and I will make sure to link to it in the recipe notes .

You'll wanna take the steaks out of the pan about 10 degrees before they've reached your desired temperature .

Transfer those to a plate loosely tent with foil and let them rest .

Now reduce your heat to medium and right away .

Add three tablespoons of unsalted butter , then add some quartered garlic cloves and a sprig of fresh rosemary .

Add all of your shrimp to the pan and spread them out .

So they're cooking in a single layer , saute your shrimp for just one minute per side or just until they're cooked through shrimp .

Cook very fast .

So be sure you don't overcook them or they will turn rubbery as soon as the shrimp look pink and opaque , you're gonna take them off the heat , right .

Our steak has been resting for about 10 minutes and the internal temperature has reached about 135 F , which should give us a perfect medium doneness .

Add the steaks back to your warm skillet along with any juices that have accumulated on your plate .

Turn the steaks to coat in that amazing garlic rosemary butter and spoon on extra butter over the top .

You can transfer the steaks and shrimp to a platter to serve or just serve it right out of the pan .

Right .

Coming in hot .

Oh , my goodness .

I am so hungry for this .

I mean , you guys are just looking at this .

I have to smell it too .

Ok .

I cannot wait to enjoy this .

Oh , and before we serve I do have something else .

Oh , to go with this surf and turf .

I have made my boiled new potatoes in butter and olive oil .

It's so easy and so delicious .

And if you start the potatoes at the same time as the surf and turf , it's done at the same time .

So dinner is ready and I'm ready to dig in .

By the way , I do have that recipe on my site .

So you'll find the link in the notes .

It's so easy and it just goes really well with these , with the steak and the shrimp .

So I'm gonna add some buttery potatoes .

So hungry for this .

This is just the perfect date night in .

It's so such a romantic meal and it's so special .

I mean , filet mignon juicy shrimp .

And if you don't like shrimp , you can try lobster .

That's also very good .

A bunch of shrimp .

Oh , I love shrimp .

If you've been following our channel for any length of time , you will know that I have a small , large obsession with shrimp .

Yum .

Ok .

Maybe it took a little more than half .

My poor husband .

He has to watch this taste too .

You'll get your portion , honey .

And we definitely want to take advantage of the pan juices because that garlic rosemary butter is incredible .

And it's like a brown butter .

At this point .

I like to just put that over the steak , put that over the shrimp .

Ok .

Here we go .

I'm gonna show you just how tender this steak is .

This is the best way to cook a steak because you can really keep an eye on it .

So it doesn't get overcooked , but definitely , definitely get yourselves .

One of these .

This is our favorite thermometer .

I will link to this in the notes .

It is a lifesaver , especially when you're cooking expensive cuts of meat .

You don't want to mess that up .

Ok .

Here we go .

Do some sliced and this knife just goes through that steak like butter filet mignon is so tender , especially when it's cooked right that you can just go through it with a fork .

Seriously , it's so good .

All right .

We're gonna get that bite of steak , gonna push it around those pan juices because mm .

Here we go .

Get in my belly .

Yes .

Oh .

Mm .

Yeah .

Mhm .

Look at this cut of steak getting close and look at how juicy and tender that is .

And I'm gonna grab one of these plump shrimp because how can I not look at this ?

And these are just like swimming in that flavored butter , you know , it's gonna be good .

Oh , my gosh .

Hm .

This totally tastes restaurant quality .

I mean , like something that you would pay probably more than 100 and $50 for two people in a nice steak house .

But I made this in my kitchen in less than 30 minutes and for a fraction of the price .

This is so good .

I have to have another 10 , my God .

This is so good .

Literally one minute per side and they are so plump juicy and tender .

Mm .

Oh , ok .

My poor husband , honey , come and get it .
