  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided use
  • 1 1/2 pounds steak such as New York strip steak
  • 1/2 pound jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined, leave tails on for a nicer presentation
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley divided use
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat one tablespoon of olive oil over high heat in a large pan. Season the steak and shrimp with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place the steak in the pan. Cook undisturbed for 5-7 minutes per side, or until desired level of doneness is achieved. I recommend using a meat thermometer to monitor the temperature of your steak.
  • Remove the steak from the pan and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Wipe out the pan with a paper towel. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan.
  • Add the shrimp and cook for 3-4 minute or until pink and opaque.
  • Remove the shrimp from the pan.
  • Melt the butter in the pan. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the parsley.
  • Place the steaks back in the pan. Arrange the shrimp on top of the steaks.
  • Spoon the garlic butter sauce over the steak and shrimp. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon of parsley, then serve.
