I love fish, but I am also a huge beef lover. I love going to steak houses and ordering the Surf and Turf platter.
One day this summer, the idea occurred to me, to combine the two on a skewer, and make a kabob out of it.
My husband can testify, these are the best kabobs we have ever eaten. They were so tender, juicy, and full of our favorite surf and turf flavors.
If you are like me, and trying to take advantage of this warm grilling weather while you can, I highly recommend trying these Surf and Turf Kabobs next.
They are so simple to throw together, and taste absolutely amazing.
what is surf and turf?
Surf and turf is a dish that contains both sea food, and meat. It is typically shellfish and beef of some sort.
You could easily switch out the shrimp for another shell fish, or really any fish, but for these kabobs, they add just the right amount of flavor and tenderness, making it the perfect surf and turf combo.
I have only made these kabobs using steak and shrimp, but I am sure other meats would work great as well. This is just what I recommend.
how to make surf and turf kabobs:
Marinade your steak and shrimp. You can do this together or separate them.
Soak the skewers (if wood), in water for at least 20 minutes. Place the kabobs on the grill for 4 minutes on medium, flip, and cook for another 4 minutes.
Remove from grill and enjoy. These taste amazing with steak sauce. We usually serve ours with baked potatoes, and a salad.
how long should i soak my skewers?
I have found that about 10-20 minutes of soaking wooden skewers, keeps them from burning, chipping, or breaking.
I usually soak mine in pretty cold water as well.
Simply rinsing them in water doesn’t fully allow the water to sink into the wood, so we highly recommend soaking them and full absorbing them in the water for about 10-20 minutes.
