Citrus Surf and Turf

I just love to cook with flap steak but sometimes it can be a bit on the pricey side. 

So when I find this type of steak on sale I always buy extra and store it in my “freezer pantry”.

This steak is so tasty and really absorbs marinades and dry rubs nicely.

Also included in this recipe is a quick and easy recipe for shrimp.

I like to make these shrimp and lay them over steak when having guests over for dinner because it makes the dish look so delicious.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

For the Shrimp – fresh raw shrimp (peeled, deveined, tails on), butter, garlic, lemon juice and paprika.

For the Meat – flap meat, garlic powder, chili powder, ground black pepper and lime juice.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Flap Steak:

In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, chili powder and pepper.

On both sides of the meat, rub the spice mixture.

Next,

Squeeze the lime juice on both sides of the meat.

Let sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to an hour.

Remove the meat from the refrigerator before cooking about the time when starting the grill.

Heat the barbecue grill on medium heat.

When the grill is hot, add the flap meat to the grill (the flap meat can also be cooked in a skillet if preferred).

Cook no more than 3 minutes per side; this steak may be tough if cooked past medium rare.

After removing the steak from the grill put it on a plate and let it rest (about 5 to 10 minutes) before cutting.

For the Shrimp:

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add the butter.

When the butter melts, add chopped garlic and stir.

Add the shrimp to the pan and stir.

Squeeze on the shrimp.

After squeezing the juice out of the lemon, an option is to toss the lemon pieces in the skillet for a bit to give the shrimp even more lemon flavor.

Stir.

Next,

add paprika to the shrimp and stir.

If you put the pieces of lemon in the skillet, take them out and discard.

The shrimp should start to brown.

Continue to stir until both sides of the shrimp are browned.

Assembling the Dish:

After the flap steak has rested, cut it diagonally against the grain in approximately ½ inch thick pieces or thicker if preferred.

Serve the shrimp with the steak.

Garnish with quarters of lemon and, or lime.

Then,

enjoy.
