8 ct shrimp & prime filet...dayum! (Pics)

I walked by the butcher section today at Kroger and about passed out. They had 8ct gulf shrimp that were amazing! I opted to add a couple of prime filets to them for me and SWMBO. image image image image The timing of it all was a little stressful but the final product was insane. I added some 3 cheese tortellini and home made spicy Alfredo sauce.

    Thanks all. As for the asparagus...I wash, cut and put them in a Pyrex dish with salt, pepper & EVOO for about 30 minutes. Then take out and wrap with bacon. I cooked the Asparagus and shrimp raised direct at 350. When done, I put them on separate plates and covered with foil. I then removed the top rack and cranked the egg up to 650 for the steaks. I sear for 1 minute on each side and then shut the egg completely down, throw in a 1/2 cup of mesquite chips and cook to temp checking every few minutes with the Thermapen.
