SURF & TURF (LOBSTER & STEAK) RECIPE
FOR THE LOBSTER
4 long wooden skewers
8 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
4 shell-on lobster tails, with underside membrane, removed
Garlic Butter Sauce
FOR THE STEAK
1 Ribeye steak or cut of your choice
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 lemon, cut into wedges
4 tablespoons fresh parsley
Fresh Horseradish Aioli Sauce (optional)
METHOD FOR THE LOBSTER
Preheat the oven at 450°F.
Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 25 minutes.
In a small microwavable dish, mix the butter and lemon juice then melt & reserve to cool.
Remove the skewers from the water and insert through the flesh at the bottom of the tail to the upper portion. Place the prepared lobster tails on a baking tray, shell side down, and brush melted butter over the lobster tail. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 10 mins.
METHOD FOR THE STEAK
Heat a cast-iron skillet to smoking hot.
Divide the steak equally and brush both sides of each steak with oil and season with salt and pepper.
Add steaks to the hot skillet and cook for 5-10 minutes on the first side (Do not move during cook time). Then flip the steaks and cook on the reverse side for an additional 5-7 minutes until they are medium-rare (at about 130°F) or to the desired doneness, 10 to 12 minutes total. Transfer to a plate and allow to rest 5 minutes.
Serve with lobster on top of the steak and drizzle some sauce on the side!
