The Ultimate Surf and Turf

Surf and Turf Recipe
An indulgent dinner for two ... because this year you've earned it! As alternatives to Christmas Dinner go this is as good and as different as you can get.
If you're looking to spoil yourself rotten this year and want to ring the changes, this dish will not fail to impress.
x Lobster, (cooked, split and cleaned)
x 200g Fillet Steaks
g Garlic Butter
A little Sunflower Oil
Salt and Pepper
1. Start by placing the two lobster halves on a baking tray, cut side up and spread the garlic butter over each half.

2. Rub each of the steaks with a little oil and season with salt and pepper.

3. When you have you side dishes almost ready (see below for suggestions) preheat the oven to 180°c and heat a good solid frying pan that you trust not to stick.

4. The lobster takes only 6-8 minutes to warm through in the oven.

5. The steak really depends on how you like it. I always oil the steak first then heat the pan.

6. When the pan is nice and hot, carefully place the steaks in the pan.

7. For rare steaks cook for 3 minutes on each side and rest for a minute before serving. Cook for longer if you prefer, but remember the thinner the steak the quicker it will cook, so choose nice thick cuts of meat.

8. To serve place the steak and the cooked lobster on a warm plate with a wedge of lemon.

9. Then it comes to the side dishes that will go well with this dish you could try some, small roast potatoes with rosemary, baked vine tomatoes, steamed baby vegetables and a little port wine sauce to go with your steak.

10. As for what to drink with this dish it's quite tricky, with white wine going with seafood and red going with beef. What I say is "when in doubt crack open the Champagne!" you can't go wrong.
