Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means the clock is ticking to decide how you’ll show your special someone how much you care.
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a romantic candlelit dinner at home with a classic surf and turf dish.
The pairing is actually one of the most popular dishes made on Valentine’s Day. The combination of a hearty, juicy steak with tender, buttery lobster exemplifies luxury.
Not only is surf and turf a decadent and impressive offering to prepare for your special someone, but it’s also very easy to prepare. We recommend going with a filet mignon and pairing it with a lobster or lobster tail. The steak will require a pan sear and a short time in the oven.
Lobster can be prepared in a variety of ways, including being steamed, broiled, pan-roasted or grilled.
One added bonus is that the delectable lobster on your plate is not only going to be tasty, but it’s also classified as an aphrodisiac, setting the mood for the rest of the night for you and your special someone. Lobster gets this classification from being equated with luxury as well as having to eat lobster with your hands and the red color of the shell, which is associated with hearts, love and Valentine’s Day.
