The first meal my husband ever cooked me was Surf ‘n’ Turf. I remember so clearly sitting on the bench top in his kitchen, I had met this man only 24 hours previously in the little town of Tea Gardens NSW, I had rung my mum back in the UK to give her his address! Well it was nearly like a blind date!! Brad was pottering away in the kitchen and then asked me “how do you like your steak cooked?” without thinking into my response, I replied “blue” to which Brad walked over to the cutlery drawer and handed me a knife and fork and told me to “go find a cow in a field” major LOL’s! I knew this man was a keeper 🙂
2 x scotch fillets / T-bone steaks – your choice really!
10 x raw prawns
2 x bunches of fresh asparagus
4 tbsp oil
25g plain flour
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp oil
2 cups of milk
- For the sauce – melt butter and add in chopped garlic then to form the rue add in the flour. You will probably need to remove it from the heat.
- gradually add in the milk until a sauce is formed (to your desired constancy) – put cling wrap on top of sauce to stop it from forming a skin and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees
- Bring griddle pan up to heat and add in two tbsp of oil. Cook the steak 3 minutes each side and then pop into the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes for medium.
- In a frying pan add in tbsp oil and cook the asparagus until slightly chard. Remove asparagus from the pan.
- In the asparagus frying pan add in last tbsp oil and cook the prawns until pink – about 4 minutes.
- Plate up – Asparagus first, topped with steak and then prawns and finally the sauce!
