New Years Eve Cook

 As usual; it will just be low key night at home for NYE... My wife, who normally will vote for chicken of some type 10/10 times decided to flip things and tells me we (read me) should do surf & turf for tomorrow night. I grabbed my coat and ran for the door to get to Wegman's before the hoards had decimated the place, they are also calling for snow later this week which will in all likely hood cause a run on all food stuffs, but I digress...

As I headed out the door, my wife yells down that she wants little filets and whatever the surf I pick... :)

So, here's the line up for tomorrow night's cook... I'm sure I will be doing some research on at least one of the items

Turf - 3 prime dry aged filets

Surf - U10 scallops & 6oz cold water lobster tails

Sides - Baby Red potatoes and asparagus

Dessert - A chocolate cream pie

Cooking plan...

Doing the potatoes first in a basket direct, followed by the asparagus. Keep them warm in the oven...

Then I'm going to pan sear the scallops in the CI and finish with some Orange Vanilla butter, followed by the tails, not sure how to cook, probably just put the meat on top of the shell and roast direct till finished and hit with the OV butter as well...

Doing the filets down on the CI grate on the spider, searing and flipping until the desired temp for each of us. I picked up some Truffle butter to use to finish them when they are plated and resting...

Beverages TBD

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable evening with your family and friends!

    Sounds like a good plan. Have a similar theme over here, have a few families coming over. My turf is some 2" NY strips, surf is shrimp. Also have ABTs, pig shots, bacon wrapped asparagus, and pizza on the menu.

    Sounds really good... dammit, now I might have to grab some bacon tomorrow. I hadn't thought of that, but the last time I made the bacon wrapped asparagus, it was insanely good :)

    Sounds yummy! If I wasn't cooking a dinner on my Egg to serve midafternoon, I'd want to start heading down there. If I left now I could just make it in time. Good luck with your Cook!

    Here are some pics...

    Egg is fired up and the veggies are almost done. Then it's the seafood and finally the beef. Of course there's my Woodford and favorite stick.

    I bought a whole filet a few months back from wegmans. I went in to look at their pork butts and saw a few whole filets that were marked down 50% off due to sell by that day 6.50 a lb versus 12.99. I bought two one for us and one for a friend. I left two behind. If I had know how good it was going to be I would not have left any there. It was by far one of the best steaks I have ever had. The wife even ate all of hers not trimming any thing off. As I type this I think I am going to pull some out of the freezer for dinner tomorrow night. Ps all of your food looks great.

    LOL... Thanks. My wife isn't a big fan of beef but raved about the filet. Used their truffle finishing butter on them. Might be my best meal yet on this thing

    God that looks great Hap.  It almost makes me want to go to the store and start cooking right now.
