What To Serve With Lobster : Filet Mignon

What to Serve With Lobster: Filet Mignon

There are few foods that I enjoy more in this world other than lobster. The taste and texture of lobster are phenomenal and give my mouth a treat every time I sit down to eat a freshly-cooked crustacean. While you can certainly enjoy a delicious meal just eating lobster, additional side dishes can only enhance the savory flavors you will receive from this seafood delicacy. This article will give you a great idea for what you can create to go with your lobster dish.

Some people think that lobster tastes best when it is the only meat in the meal, complemented by standard side dishes such as baked potatoes, asparagus, rice pilaf, and other dishes. But as many know, lobster paired with steak makes a fantastic meal that gives you two wonderful flavors that complement and enhance each other. A lot of people choose sirloin or ribeye to go with their lobster, and these two cuts are great choices. But if I am going to create the perfect lobster and steak combination for my meal, I am going to really choose only one type of steak – the soft, tender, mouth-watering filet mignon.

What to Serve With Lobster: Tender Filet Mignon

If you have heard of the dish “surf n’ turf”, then you will definitely want to make this dish. This recipe combines a succulent lobster with a tender, mouth-watering piece of filet mignon to create the ultimate combination of seafood and other types of meat. The recipe below is perfect for preparing your filet mignon on the grill along with your lobster. You will need:

- 1 6-oz portion of filet mignon (one-inch thick)

- 1 tablespoon of olive oil

- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic

- ½ cup of Worchestershire sauce

- Cracked black pepper

- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Take your Worchestershire, pepper, garlic, and olive oil and mix it together in a shallow dish. Place the filet mignon in the dish and let it marinate in this solution overnight. When you are ready to grill the next day, fire your grill up and let it get to the highest temperature setting, if you have a gas grill. Even if you have another type of grill, you will want it so you cannot keep your hand about 2-3 inches over the grate before pulling it away. High heat is necessary so you do not overcook the filet.

Toss your filet mignon on the grill and sear on one side for about five minutes. Flip and sear the other side for another 5 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to see if it is done: 120 degrees F equals rare; 125 degrees F equals medium-rare; and 130 degrees F equals medium. If you want a bit more flavor, salt your filet mignon after you take it off the grill and serve. I do not recommend salting your filet mignon before you begin cooking, because it will likely pull water to the surface – resulting in a filet mignon that is not as moist as it should be.
