5 Minute Cheap and Easy Surf and Turf Recipe

[twitter]This surf and turf recipe is so cheap and so so easy. It’s a steak, and some shrimp. That’s it, although you could easily grill some asparagus alongside the steak or toss a salad if you need veggies.

I got a nice, thin, 5 oz steak in a pack at WalMart. 2 for $5. Awesome. I got the shrimp already cooked, with tails on in the seafood couter. They were dead cheap too.

A thin steak and precooked shrimp means this wicked easy surf and turf recipe takes 5 minutes. TOPS.


1 Steak
7oz / 220 gram cooked shrimp/prawns
1 Tb butter
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1 Tb fresh chopped Italian parsley
1 Tb fresh chopped cilantro


Preheat the barbecue.

Melt the butter in a pan over medium / high heat. Quickly sautee the garlic.

Toss in the shrimp/prawns

Barbecue should be heated by now, throw on the steak.

Toss the shrimp with the butter and garlic. We’re just trying to warm up the seafood here, they’re already cooked.

Head outside and flip your steak.

Toss in the parsley and cilantro. Knock a few turns from your pepper mill in too. Again, we’re just trying to get everything mingling here. It’s already cooked.

How’s the steak?

Plate the shrimp, head outside and plate your steak.

That, friends, is the easiest, fastest, cheapest, best surf and turf recipe you will find. 5 minutes to cook surf and turf, and less than that to eat it. Love.
