the Ingredients

20160315150815 Fnp1464
  • 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 / 115 grams (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

  • 01 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.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat {350° to 450°F). If you're using a charcoal grill, keep a small part of the charcoal grate clear of briquettes as a safety zone of indirect heat.
  • 03 In a small saucepan over medium heat on the stove, warm the butter and garlic until the butter melts and comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 04 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.
  • 05 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.
  • 06 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.
  • 07 Reheat the butter. Serve the steaks warm topped with shrimp, butter, and parsley.
