Surf and turf or surf ‘n’ turf is a main course combining seafood and red meat. A typical seafood component would be lobster (either lobster tail or a whole lobster, prawns, shrimp, squid or scallops, any of which could be steamed, grilled or breaded and fried. The meat is typically beef steak, although others may be used. One standard combination is lobster tail and filet mignon.

Surf and turf is typically served in steakhouses in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.

Surf and turf is sometimes referred to as Reef and beef or Reef ‘n’ Beef in Australia.
In late 19th-century America, combining large portions of lobster and steak was popular at “show restaurants known as lobster palaces”, favored by nouveau riche “arrivistes”. This became unfashionable by the 1920s, and only regained popularity in the early 1960s.

Surf ‘n’ turf was featured in 1962 at the Eye of the Needle, a revolving restaurant atop the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

Surf and turf is often considered to symbolize the middle-class “Continental cuisine” of the 1960s and 1970s, with (frozen) lobster and steak as replacement for the middle class.

A variation is the surf and turf burger, which is prepared with ground beef and various types of seafood, such as lobster, shrimp or crab.

Whipped Feta Dip with Roasted Red Peppers

Southwestern Layered Bean Dip

Be sure to have lots of baked tortilla chips on hand when you serve it……

One of America’s Favorites – Bisque

Lobster Bisque

Bisque is a smooth, creamy, highly seasoned soup of French origin, classically based on a strained broth (coulis) of crustaceans. It can be made from lobster, langoustine, crab, shrimp, or crayfish. Alongside chowder, bisque is one of the most popular seafood soups.

It is thought the name is derived from Biscay, as in Bay of Biscay, but the crustaceans are certainly bis cuites “twice cooked” (by analogy to a biscuit) for they are first sautéed lightly in their shells, then simmered in wine and aromatic ingredients, before being strained, followed by the addition of cream.

The term ‘bisque’ is also sometimes used to refer to cream-based soups that do not contain seafood, in which the pre-cooked ingredients are pureed or processed in a food processor or a food mill. Common varieties include squash, tomato, mushroom, and red pepper.

Bisque is a method of extracting flavor from imperfect crustaceans not good enough to send to market. In an authentic bisque, the shells are ground to a fine paste and added to thicken the soup. Julia Child even remarked, “Do not wash anything off until the soup is done because you will be using the same utensils repeatedly and you don’t want any marvelous tidbits of flavor losing themselves down the drain.” Bisques are thickened with rice, which can either be strained out, leaving behind the starch, or pureed during the final stages.

Seafood bisque is traditionally served in a low two-handled cup on a saucer or in a mug.

Today’s Menu: Broiled Lobster Tail, Sea Salt Rubbed Buffalo Tri Tip Steaks and Baked Steak Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Woke up to a couple of inches of new snow. But that is only the start of it! They say we will have 9-11 inches of snow by Tuesday morning! Add that to 4 or 5 inches we had on the ground and you’re talking a lot of snow, especially for this area. But nothing you can do but sit back and wait. I just wish we weren’t living on a hill and the driveway wasn’t a hill it’s self. None of it good for a guy in a wheelchair! Enough rambling, for Dinner tonight I prepared Broiled Lobster Tail, Sea Salt Rubbed Buffalo Tri Tip Steaks and Baked Steak Fries.

 

Mom loves Lobster so I ordered a box of 8 1/4 lb Lobster Tails from Luke’s Lobster. Luke’s is where I had ordered the Lobster Rolls from, which were incredible! I was hoping to get them the day before her Birthday last Friday but they didn’t arrive until late Saturday. So I’m preparing a couple of them tonight. They were frozen so I had laid a couple of them in the fridge to thaw overnight.

 

To prepare them I used a sharp knife, halve each lobster tail lengthwise, cutting almost all the way through the soft side, and pulled gently at each side to laid the lobster flat in a small boiler pan. Next I heated the broiler to 450. Place lobster tails seasoned side up. Cooked them until the meat became opaque white and the shell turned bright red, cooked for about 9 minutes. Brushed with melted butter and they were ready to eat. They were so delicious and had such good flavor. We’ll be having these again, we have 6 left!

 

Then I had ordered a couple of packages of Wild Idea Buffalo – JILL’S SEA SALT RUBBED TRI-TIP STEAKS while they were on sale. Having a package tonight for Dinner. I had them in the freezer and sat them in the fridge to thaw overnight. It comes packaged as 2 – 4 oz. steaks per package and it’s already Seasoned with Organic: Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Lemon Juice, Black Pepper, Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, Garlic, and Onion Powder.

 

To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400°. In a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to, I heated it over medium high heat. When ready I added my Steaks to it. I cooked the Steaks 1 minute each side. I just wanted a light sear on both sides. Then I moved the Skillet on to the preheated Oven and Roasted it for about 4 minutes. Removed the Skillet from the Oven and placed the Steaks on a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting. The Tri -Tip Steak was super tender and juicy. I had cooked to a medium rare and it came perfect! Topped it with a side of Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries and had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Lobster Rolls with Potato Chips

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. 31 degrees and sunny, wind chill in the low 20’s. I have a Hoveround Mobility Chair that I use here at and around the house. Well Medicare makes you get a new one every 5 years. There was a glitch in Medicare approving it over the type of seat. But they finally approved it. A big thank you to my Doctor and Hoveround for the time they spent on getting this Medicare approved! Then at about 10:30 I took my Mom to get her Driver License renewed. Mom is 93 next week and she is very hard of hearing. She was really worried she would fail the hearing test. But she passed and everything is fine! So good news today around our house! For Dinner tonight I prepared Lobster Rolls with Potato Chips.

 

I had purchased the Lobster from Luke’s Lobster (https://www.lukeslobster.com/) out of Maine a while back. We used 1/2 the order a few weeks ago and I’m preparing the other half for Dinner tonight!

 

To prepare the Lobster I took a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and heated it on medium low. As the Butter was melting I increased the heat to in between low and medium heat. Let it heat for 2 minutes and added the Lobster Chunks. Heated it for 2 minutes, stirring several times. Removed it from the heat and put the Lobster in to a bowl. Then added a 1/2 tsp of Lemon Juice, a tsp of Kraft Light Mayo w/Olive Oil, and seasoned it with about 4 pinches of the Luke’s Seasoning. I’ll be using Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Wheat Buns to serve my Lobster on. I topped them with just a light coat of melted Butter and served! Wow, what a Lobster Roll! Huge Chunks of Lobster with that hint of Lemon, Butter, and Luke’s Seasoning. Lobster maybe pricey but worth every cent. The Lobster Meat tasted so Fresh and Sweet. We will be purchasing more from Luke’s Lobster again! Also the Luke’s Lobster arrives Frozen in secure Packaging along with a ship date of your choice!

We had some Mike Sell’s Reduced Fat Chips with the Lobster Rolls. Later for Dessert a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped a dab of Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Lobster Rolls with Potato Chips

 

 

The last day of 2020, finally! We woke up to about 1/2 inch on the ground and 22 degrees. So to heat the morning up I made us a good Breakfast. I prepared some Glier’s Goetta, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Scrambled Eggs, Pillsbury Flaky Biscuits, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to the last day! Did a load of laundry and some light house cleaning. Then it was a day computer and TV. Relaxing day. For Dinner tonight for the first time, Lobster Rolls with Potato Chips.

 

I purchased the Lobster from Luke’s Lobster (https://www.lukeslobster.com/) out of Maine. I read about Luke’s from a blog that featured the Lobster Rolls that I’m preparing tonight. I purchased the Luke’s Lobster Roll Bundle – Serves 8. It comes frozen, 2 packages of 1 lb. each of Lobster Pieces (Chunks), an 8 pack of frozen Split Top Rolls, and a package of Luke’s Seasoning. I’m drooling while writing this! I laid 1 of the packages of Lobster and 4 of the Split Top Rolls in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

To prepare the Lobster I took a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and heated it on medium low. As the Butter was melting I increased the heat to in between low and medium heat. Let it heat for 2 minutes and added the Lobster Chunks. Heated it for 2 minutes, stirring several times. Removed it from the heat and put the Lobster in to a bowl. Then added a 1/2 tsp of Lemon Juice, a tsp of Kraft Light Mayo w/Olive Oil, and seasoned it with about 4 pinches of the Luke’s Seasoning. Set aside and prepare the Rolls.

 

In another small skillet I heated the Rolls up. Heated the skillet on medium low heat. Added the Rolls on both sides for about 2 minutes and removed the Rolls on to plates. I spread the inside of the Rolls with a bit of the Mayo. Then filled each Split Roll with the now Chilled Lobster. I topped them with just a light coat of melted Butter and served! Wow, what a Lobster Roll! Huge Chunks of Lobster with that hint of Lemon, Butter, and Luke’s Seasoning. Lobster maybe pricey but worth every cent. The Lobster Meat tasted so Fresh and Sweet. We will be purchasing more from Luke’s Lobster again! Also the Luke’s Lobster arrives Frozen insecure Packaging along with a ship date of your choice!

 

We served the with some Mike Sell’s Reduced Fat Chips. Later for a Dessert/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Buying Fresh Lobster………………………..

Live lobsters should be feisty, not sluggish or listless, and they should feel heavy for their size. When you lift them, their tails should curl and they should flail at you with their claws. For chefs who want to use just the lobster meat, buying fresh, frozen or blanched lobster meat might be the best option.
