"I am a big fan of combining steak and seafood. This is a cheaper option than a jumbo lump crabmeat recipe I enjoy as well. Hope you find it tasty." — Chef Ches

2 (4 ounce)
beef tenderloin filets, 1 1/2 inches thick
salt to taste
uncooked shrimp - peeled, deveined, and cut into 3 pieces
salt and pepper to taste
I thought this was a wonderful addition to filet mignon. I did not cut up the shrimp but left them whole and served them on the side in the cream sauce. I left the option open to drizzle the cream sauce over the filet. My husband did not add the sauce at first, but after tasting it he was won over. I thought it was a delicate sauce and not overpowering. I will definately make this again for a special occasion.
I think a sorghum molasses reduction would have complimented the meat more appropriately. Keep shellfish on the side.
This recipe rocks!! absolutely amazing and its so easy! i made for my boyfriend on valentines day and i wish i would have invited some friends over to show it off! a thousand thumbs up!
This was awesome. My family loved it and it will definitely make repeat appearances. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a handful of shredded parmesan cheese. the sauce was not heavy and overpowering as some have said. It complimented the meat perfectly.
AWSOME! i love love love red meats with seafood and this is a wonderful rcipe.
Very Tasty! The only change I made was seasoning the beef and letting it sit at room temperature an hour before cooking. My husband was a bit concerned that he had forgotten some sort of special occasion (he hadn't) because it is that type of meal. The one and three year old loved it. I wish that I had steamed cauliflower to serve with it. It would have been delicious in the sauce.
While the sauce is delicious, it is too much for filet Mignon. It would be wonderful over fresh pasta. But filet mignon deserves not to be overpowered with such a powerful and heavy sauce. Don't get me wrong the beef was great. The garlic shrimp cream sauce was great. They just don't belong together.
This is a great recipe. Easy to make and tastes great. Made it as written and it turned out great. Nothing new to add...thanks for recipe...Chef Ches
