What is in surf and turf?
Surf and turf means something a little different to different people. A variety of different combinations are out there but they always consist of seafood and meat, normally lobster and steak. The ‘surf and turf’ refers to something from the sea (lobster) and something that grazes on the grass (steak.) Surf and turf is typically served with different types of veggies or potatoes. For this recipe, we’re going low carb with some Brussell sprouts and sweet potatoes!
Is surf and turf healthy?
Absolutely, this surf and turf recipe is pretty healthy. This meal is low-carb and packed with protein. If you serve it with the sides I recommend, then it provides you with your daily veggies as well. A lot of good vitamins and nutrients are in the veggies. A delicious meal with wonderful benefits!
What are the benefits of eating lobster?
Lobster has a lot of good health benefits, making it a great meat to mix into your meal rotation. Besides being full of protein, lobster has a lot of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins, and minerals. Omega-3s are essential for our diet and help prevent heart disease and promote weight loss. Including foods with more omega-3 fatty acids is so important, making this dish a good one to try!
What veggies are good as a side to surf and turf?
As I mentioned earlier, I love to serve my surf and turf with Brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes. If you want an even lower-carb option, you can swap the sweet potatoes out for a different veggie. I love to add a little bit of balsamic glaze to the top of the Brussel sprouts for some fun and dynamic flavor to this dish. A lot of other veggies are also delicious with surf and turf. For example, my roasted Instant Pot potatoes or my green beans with shallots recipe works so well to compliment the lobster and the steak.
How do you make Brussel sprouts for this dish?
I use the bag of shredded Brussel sprouts from Trader Joe’s to make this dish. I add a little bit of butter and olive oil to the pan and toss them around until they get a little bit crispy and cooked to my preference. While cooking, I add a little bit of water to the pan to steam them so they are cooked thoroughly. Once I have finished cooking them, I drizzle on some balsamic glaze. These are so delicious and SO easy to make.

1️First, I seared the steak on both sides in some butter and extra virgin olive oil. After searing, I then finished it in the oven. (While I typically like the taste of fire on my steak, this method is still good and it's easier.)
2️For the lobster, I placed it in a steamer basket and steamed it on low steam for about 4 min.
3️Let the lobster sit and cool; it will continue to cook while cooling
TIP: make sure that the lobster turns white/opaque (not translucent)
