Surf and Turf

shrimp cooking

This is the shrimp in process

Steak, garlic, wine, and shrimp. Mix it all together for a simple, quick and super tasty dinner! Technically, according to the recipe, I’m supposed to add vermouth instead of wine. But I used what I had on hand. What was interesting is that I’ve never actually cooked with alcohol before… so I was a little worried about burning down my kitchen. But success! The kitchen is still intact.

The basic steps to this dish are to cook the shrimp in olive oil for about 30 seconds, add in the minced garlic, and then add herbs and the wine (or vermouth!). The trick is to cook the shrimp only until they are lightly pink and a little firm. I seared some steak to go on the side – that’s the turf of the surf and turf. Voila!

And it even looks pretty!

And it even looks pretty!

Rachel Ray gave me some help with this one too, I improvised from her “Italian-Style Garlic Shrimp with Cherry Tomatoes and Thin Spaghetti” for the shrimp.
