Surf and Turf

A new post?!? No way! Ok, so I'm trying again......but I make no promises! These recipes I found this weekend and tried them out together for a fabulous Surf and Turf meal. They are both so incredibly easy. I got my steaks and big, beautiful prawns at Costco and was not disappointed! Great flavors!


1 tablespoon McCormick® Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning or 1 tablespoon McCormick® Grill Mates® 25% Less Sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon McCormick® Onion Powder1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Oregano Leaves
1 pound boneless beef sirloin, porterhouse or New York strip steak
1. Mix Steak Seasoning, sugar, onion powder and oregano in small bowl until well blended. Generously season steak with spice mixture.

2. Grill over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes per side or until desired doneness.
Test Kitchen Tip: Try with the newer cuts of steak available in the meat case, such as hanger steak, round sirloin tip center steak, shoulder top blade steak (flat iron), shoulder petite tender steak or shoulder center steak (ranch steak).

1 pound freshwater prawns in their shells
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crumbled
Instructions: Clean prawns.
Combine cleaned prawns with lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary in a glass or other non-reactive bowl. Cover and marinate for about 1 hour in the refrigerator, stirring periodically.
Preheat a large nonstick over high heat. Transfer the contents of the bowl to the hot pan. Cook the prawns for about 2 minutes on each side, until the shells turn bright pink and the meat is opaque.
Remove to a serving bowl and set another alongside for shells.
