Creamy Parmesan Shrimp Steak is an incredible and easy to make gourmet steak recipe! pan seared or grilled surf and turf!
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tsp dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Ribeye steaks (8 ounce each)
1/2 lb shrimp, or prawns (peeled, deveined, and tails removed)
1 Tbsp butter
Old Bay Seasoning
Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
If you’re grilling the shrimp on wooden skewers soak the skewers in water first for about 20 minutes while the sauce cooks. Click for Bamboo Skewers.
Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan and simmer on medium low, about 20 minutes, stirring often.
Stir in Parmesan cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Lower heat and keep warm while you prepare the steak and shrimp.
Season the steak to your preference. Cook either on the stove or outside grill, until done to your liking. For our 1/2 inch thick steaks we cook them on a gas grill for 4 minutes per side for medium rare.
At the same time, add the shrimp to skewers. Melt the butter in the microwave approximately 20 – 30 seconds and brush it onto the shrimp. Sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning. Click for Old Bay Seasoning.
Grill the shrimp over medium high heat, or pan fry, until pink and opaque flipping over half way through, about 2 minutes per side.
Place the grilled steak on a plate, top with the grilled shrimp and then the Parmesan sauce.
I buy shrimp that is already peeled and deveined, and sometimes with the tails already removed.
The cheese sauce is delicious and very versatile, try it over chicken, mashed potatoes, or steamed vegetables!
