Recipe: Savory “Surf” to Pair with Your “Turf”

We are already into September and summer is starting to slip away, so at The Meat House we are trying to really enjoy these last few bites of summer before Fall rolls around.  This week on the blog and in-store we are putting an emphasis on seafood.  Nothing tastes quite as summery as a perfectly prepared FRESH piece of fish. The beauty of a quality piece of seafood, like our lobster tails, is that it doesn’t take much effort at all to whip up a succulent meal.  In fact, we say the simpler, the better!

Take advantage of these fresh summer flavors while you still can, here’s how:

The Perfect Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce- the perfect accent to any grilled or baked piece of fish or shellfish.  We recommend pairing with prime filet mignon or ribeye for a delicious Surf & Turf dish.

You will need:

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted– The better the butter the bigger the flavor.

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (or lime if you feel like adding a twist to a classic)Butter

2 pinches of sea salt

1 pinch of black pepper

1 large garlic clove, chopped

  1. Add the garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender.
  2. Purée until smooth.
  3. At the same time, get the butter ready by melting in the microwave until liquified.
  4. With the motor still running, slowly add melted butter and blend until emulsified.

Add this delicious sauce to any piece of grilled fish and savor the summer.
