This recipe was inspired by Lake Geneva Meats in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin – a well-known meat market, who also has great recipes, some can be found on YouTube.
It has become a tradition to serve a “Surf-N-Turf” dinner for New Year's Eve at Lake Geneva Meats. Since I love Surf-N-Turf meals, I thought I would include this recipe with a Lake Geneva Meats video (end of article) to add to the recipes I am posting for the upcoming holidays. The pair of recipes that follow can be a dinner for two on any special occasion.
Scallop Spinach, Fennel, and Grapefruit Salad can also be added to this meal.
This Surf-N-Turf recipe is filet Mignon and shrimp. The video recipe following this one is for lobster and Ribeye fillet. Both are served with a baked potato and salad of choice.
Surf-M-Turf For Two: Grilled Filet Mignon and Shrimp
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
1 tablespoon white wine
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (Like Old Bay)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
12 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 (4 ounce) filet Mignon steaks
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon steak seasoning (I use Montreal Steak Seasoning)
- Whisk 1 tablespoons olive oil, butter, onion, wine, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, parsley, seafood seasoning, garlic, and black pepper together in a bowl; add shrimp. Toss to coat evenly. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for flavors to blend, at least 15 minutes.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Coat steaks with 2 teaspoons olive oil; sprinkle with steak seasoning.
- Cook steaks until they are beginning to firm and have reached your desired doneness, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An meat thermometer inserted in the center should read 140 degrees F. Transfer steaks to a platter and loosely tent with a piece of aluminum foil.
- Remove shrimp from marinade and grill until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
The next recipe for two, Surf-N-Turf is for indoor cooking and can be made for a New Year's Eve romantic dinner for two. Serve with a salad and your favorite wine. Try the Twice Baked Potato recipe as a side dish.
