Surf and Turf and Surf

Recommended Posts

I am really stepping outside of my comfort zone and attempting some seafood and fish cooks this month. See... I can be a team player....  :)

 

Mr. KK is not complaining about the seafood / shellfish part. 

 

Today was a long day and I knew dinner would be late. I thawed some shrimp pinwheel skewers to do for an appetizer for Mr. KK.

Those were a big big hit and went fast.  

 

Then on to the main course....

 

Had some leftover baked potatoes from a work lunch. Made twice baked potatoes. My first time doing this and they turned out awesome.

Mr. KK made some asparagus prosciutto bundles. I like these way better than bacon wrapped. 

 

Put the asparagus bundles and potatoes on with a frozen scallop bacon cream sauce dish I had in the freezer.

After giving those a headstart, put on some steaks.

 

I had texted Mr. KK to pull some steaks from the freezer earlier in the day. He pulled two ribeyes and a couple of strip loins.

Started pulling some of the scsllops out of the sauce to direct grill a bit.

Getting close.

Put the scallops over pretty direct heat to thicken the sauce at the end.

And Mr. KK’s plate...  everyone else had turf only.

Finishing off the rest of my crappy lump during this cook - 2nd burn on this fill up after the salmon last night. There were so many fines and dust towards the back that the lump didn’t burn very even. Just as well... that gave me a good zone for the asparagus and potatoes and scallops. 

 

All in all a very good meal. I was really impressed with how the twice baked potatoes and prosciutto asparagus turned out.

Poor Mr. KK, having to eat shrimp and scallops (and steak). How does he put up with such treatment?

 

The poor dear is suffering... Making him eat 5 more of those shrimp skewers tonight... not sure how he’s going to make it through..... :)

Dzzzaaaammmmnnnnn (I hope that is OK to say)

 

It’s even more justifiable when you take into account that was the last of a dry aged primal rib roast we had in the freezer..... He realized what he had done when he seasoned them.

 

At least it was a worthy meal...  really need to dry age another primal cut or two.

You should prolly work on getting a certain grill to a certain location so a certain someone can see pics of it being used before you worry about dry aging meat!!!

 

:-D

I think she sold it to buy all that lump. Just doesn't want to admit her lump addiction has gotten that far out of hand ;)

Let me say this as emphatically as I possibly can: I conscientiously object!!! Why are people cooking food they don't eat???? 

 

:rofl:

 

My husband devoured all the shrimp and scallops. My challenge cook will be something he will eat as well.  Not uncommon for me to cook things I don’t eat for the rest of the family.... The only uncommon thing was cooking something no one in the family eats - which is what I did with the fish cooks. But I wanted to try my hand at it and it didn’t go to waste.   :)

You supposed to make  food that the family likes .  Whether you like it or not. It's in the fine print of the wife / mother contract. Page 202  paragraph 1. You must have forgot that line when you were signing the contract.:-D wonderful looking cook by the way.:good:
