I thought this was pretty darned good and was particularly impressed with the marinade for the shrimp. I found the steak a little bland, however, and it wasn't until my wife pointed out that I was to have seasoned it with steak seasoning that I realized I had not done that, so don't forget the steak seasoning! I made this on the Cuisinart Griddler en brochette, the steak and shrimp each on separate skewers because of different cooking times. We served them with "Bahamian Style Peas and Rice," the recipe also from this site.
I followed the recipe exactly as written except for the steaks. I used NY strips in place of the filet mignons. The shrimp marinade was absolutely perfect. The shrimp was the star of this 5 star meal. Thank you Staci.
I made the Surf, but not the Turf. I needed some grilled shrimp for another recipe, used the marinade for this one, and it turned out fantastic. Definitely will be using this in the future for grilling shrimp, it was delicious!
Absolutely a 5-star in this house. The shrimp marinade was very flavorful. Simple steak seasoning on the filets. I added a bit of hickory seasoning to the steaks. Served with grilled garlic bread. Yum!
