Steak and Shrimp Dinner

A beautiful NY strip and giant shrimp combo make for a perfect dinner for 2. Enjoy it from the comforts of your own home with my simple recipe. This steak and shrimp dinner has a perfectly medium rare steak, grilled shrimp and a savory cajun honey sauce that adds richness and flavor. It’s a must try.

Step 1: How to grill the perfect medium rare steak.

For this recipe I went with a NY Strip steak. This cut of beef has beautiful marbling which creates a robust flavor and delicious eating experience.

Cover all sides of the steak with Dad’s All Purpose seasoning.

Steak and Shrimp Dinner

Dad’s Seasonings

Must have grillin seasonings!

Preheat the grill to 500 degrees and set it for direct heat. Sear the steak 5 minutes total flipping it every minute to get an even sear and cook throughout. To achieve the perfect medium rare, the final internal temperature should be around 128 degrees.

Finally, set the steak aside to rest for 10 minutes. It’s very important to rest any protein after a cook. This process helps redistribute all those wonderful juices that will create a beautifully tender slice of meat.

Steak Grilling Tip

  • Grill the steak to 110 degrees internal temperature and then sear for 1 minute on each side for a perfect medium rare cook.
  • Rest for 20 minutes to ensure a juicy cut of meat.

Step 2: How to grill the perfect giant shrimp.

For those getting the whole shrimp, make sure to devein each one. To do so, cut down the top of the crustacean and remove the thin dirty vein. Remove the head and shell.

Toss in olive oil and season with Dad’s All Purpose seasoning before hitting the grill.

Preheat the grill for 400 degrees and set for direct heat. Place the shrimp directly on the grill grates and flip after 1.5 minutes. Remove them off the grill once both sides are cooked.

Shrimp Grilling Tip

  • Shrimp easily over cook. 1.5 minutes per side is all you need.

Step 3: Homemade cajun honey butter sauce.

This cajun honey sauce is great way to elevate any dish adding richness and a punch of flavor.

In a sauce pan, melt a stick of butter, add honey, minced garlic, garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and Italian seasoning. Simmer over low-med heat making sure to continuously whisk as the sauce thickens.

Plate the steak and shrimp dinner with some grilled asparagus, pour a generous spoonful of the cajun sauce and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What cut of steak should I use?

Type of steak depends on what you are trying to grill up. For hot and fast look for cuts with good marbling like a ribeye or NY strip. If you are cooking a roast or stew, look for cuts that are cheaper and meatier like a chuck roast.

At what temperature should I remove the steak?

The internal temperature all depends on how you want or prefer your steak cooked. For a medium rare, remove it at between 120-125 degrees. If you are going for a medium cooked steak, anywhere between 135-140 degrees. Anything over will be well done. Remember to always rest the meat for 10 minutes before slicing.

Can I make this in the oven stove top?

All my recipes can be replicated in the oven, stove top or gas grill. You do not need a big green egg or weber grill to replicate any of my recipes.
