Surf and Turf

Today’s recipe is a wonderful combination of true gourmet comfort foods or at least foods we perceive to be just about heaven on the food scale. It is a trio of foods that just pair up so nice you’ll want to make it again and soon. I am talking about the famous combination of surf and turf with the grill being our focal point. To top this off I serve them up with some cream cheese mashed potatoes that are so silky smooth you’ll never go back to regular mashed again and don’t even get me started on that stuff in the box.

The first anchor of our land and sea pairing is a wonderful grilled pepper steak. This is just the right compliment to go with the otherwise subdued grilled lobster. Although we do pick up the lobster with some chipotle lime butter to give it a bit of life for the most part lobster is a fairly non descript mellow food on its own that is why when paired with the steak it kind of comes to life and balances the taste pallet out.

To go with our land and sea theme we bring a New England favorite and as any New Englander knows the best lobster comes from Maine. Now you could do whole lobsters if you like but the tail is the predominate meat source and it is perfect for grilling. To liven it up a bit we make a homemade chipotle lime butter that brings a nice amount of heat to the very plain lobster taste the fact that we do it on the grill also helps tie in that smoky flavor you’ll find in the chipotle. To connect our land and sea combo we make some homemade cream cheese mashed potatoes to make every mouthful a dream meal come true. Continue reading

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
