Surf & Turf

I don't post often, because I usually make boring stuff like spatchcock chicken, ribeyes, fish, pork chops and the like.  But tonight's dinner was worthy of showing off.  SRF prime boneless ribeye and a Florida spiny lobster tail.  Cooked my lovely wife a fat SRF prime filet.  My steak was a perfect medium rare and she likes hers medium, so that went on about ten minutes before mine.  Topped the steak off with a little garlic butter for good measure.  I tried something new with the lobster tail.  I usually split the tail and open it up, cooking it for about 3 minutes per side.  This time, I split the tail just enough to be able to baste it with garlic butter, but I did not cook it meat side down at all.  It came out so tender and juicy, compared to the somewhat tough and dry texture I get when I cook it meat side down for a few minutes.  No sides other than a couple garlic knots.  This was about the proteins.  Crappy pic, but you get the idea.  I wanted to dig in.

    Excellent looking meal.  I doubt you have many boring meals if you put out something like that.
