Different twist on surf ‘n’ turf




20 Min


  • 1 (10- to 12-ounce) strip steak

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted clarified butter, divided (see Note)

  • 12 sea scallops

  • 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Evenly sprinkle steak with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the garlic powder.

  2. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon clarified butter; cook steak 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness. Remove steak to a board and let rest.

  3. Wipe out skillet. Over medium heat, melt remaining 2 tablespoons clarified butter. Sprinkle scallops with remaining salt and pepper and saute 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden and firm in center.

  4. Slice steak into 12 strips and evenly divide on plates. Place a scallop on each steak slice.

  5. Stir bread crumbs and parsley in skillet, then sprinkle mixture over scallops and serve immediately.


  • Drizzle scallops with lemon juice for that extra fresh taste.
