Surf & Turf is perfect for special occasions, but no need to save it for a night out when it’s so simple to recreate at home! Paired with a glass of wine, this meal is perfect for a Valentine’s Day surprise. Cheers to love, delicious food and fantastic wine!
2 steaks (filet, strip or your favorite cut!)
6 large, wild-caught sea scallops
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 lemon, freshly squeezed
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Season the steaks and scallops with salt & pepper. Melt 4 tbsp. butter in a cast-iron or other heavy pan. Let garlic cook for 3-5 minutes, or until fragrant and softened. Sear steaks for approximately 3 minutes on each side, or until a crust forms. Baste the melted butter over the steaks with a spoon, cooking until preferred doneness is achieved. Allow the steaks to rest under loosely tented aluminum foil. In the same skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat, and sear scallops for a minute and a half to two minutes on each side, until a golden crust forms. Add a squeeze of lemon, to taste. Plate steak & scallops, and include lightly dressed, mixed baby greens. Enjoy with a glass of our 2015 Pinot Noir!
