Foolproof Surf and Turf….

Seafood is by far my favorite of all the meats. I will someday live were I can enjoy a fresh catch of the day every night for dinner but for now I will just get excited that Aldi has Langostino‘s. It is impossible to mess them up and from start to finish they take less than 10 minutes to come together. I am also going to share my secrets for a perfectly cooked steak.


1 bag of frozen Langostino’s- thawed

2 cloves of garlic- minced

2 tablespoons of butter

Dried or fresh parsley


Juice of half a lemon

Add butter to a skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add Langostino‘s and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add parsley, S&P and lemon juice.

I put this bowl in front of my son and we had to pry it out of his hands for the rest of us to get any.


2 filet mignons- remove from refrigerator 30-45 minutes before cooking to bring to room temp

Spice craft steak seasoning- liberally season steak

1 tablespoon of butter

Preheat oven to 400

Using a skillet with a long handle or a cast iron place steak on medium to high heat. Cook both sides for 3-4 minutes depending on steak thickness. Wrap handle with foil and place butter on top of each steak. Finish in the oven for 4 minutes for medium. Let steak sit for 10 minutes before cutting.

Don’t skip the butter step because it makes the flavor so much more intense.
Letting them rest allows the juice to stay in the steak and not run out when you cut into them.
I hope you enjoy it as much as this toothless dude did.
