Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 0.125 oz fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 lemons

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 0.75 lb extra-large shrimp (16/20 count)
  • 4 filet mignon steaks, each about 8 oz and 1½" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 0.25 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2.5 tsp kosher salt

Dairy

  • 0.5 cup unsalted butter

Ingredients


  • 4 filet mignon steaks, each about 8 ounces and 1½ inches thick, trimmed of excess fat
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 12 extra-large shrimp (16/20 count), peeled and deveined, tails left on
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves

Instructions

  1. Lightly brush the steaks with oil and season evenly with 2 teaspoons of the salt and the pepper. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the butter and garlic until the butter melts and comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.

  4. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the garlic butter; reserve the remaining butter. Season the shrimp with the lemon zest, the remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and the red pepper flakes.

  5. Grill the steaks over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to your desired doneness, 11 to 13 minutes for medium rare, turning once (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes.

  6. Grill the shrimp over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until firm to the touch, lightly charred, and just turning opaque in the center, about 5 minutes, turning once.

  7. Reheat the butter. Serve the steaks warm topped with shrimp, butter, and parsley.

Fantastic

Recipe was spot on, food was delicious. A great tip while following the recipe would be to put the shrimp on when taking the steak off. My wife prefers her steak closer to medium well, so cooked for 16 minutes, flipping at 9 minutes.

Outstanding surf and turf!

Made this recipe for Fathers Day dinner. Followed instructions precisely except for amount of salt used. Flavor was outstanding! Shrimp was pleasantly spicy and filets were simply outstanding! Can't wait to try this one again!

Excellent Recipe

I never thought of combining shrimp with steak and now my husband always wants grilled shrimp with his steak. We cook out a lot in the summer and this recipe adds another level to our steak cookouts. Thank you, Weber

Simple and Tasty Shrimp

Great shrimp recipe! So many grilled shrimp recipes require you to spend 30-45 minutes making a marinade, and then several hours waiting for the marinade to flavor the shrimp. This recipe takes no time to pull together, and doesn't require a long marinade rest. The lemon zest is what takes this from good to great. The shrimp has plenty of flavor, but it's not overwhelming. The flavor of the shrimp still comes through. This is the perfect pairing with beef, and a great complement to filet mignon that, while tender, tends to lack significant beef flavor. I'll make this again, and make a bord or bernaise sauce for the steak. Or maybe bacon wrap them - so many options. Definitely recommend this recipe!
