So as some of you might know from seeing my posts......I LOVE food and I LOVE to eat! Im always taking pictures of food and my wife thinkis I'm weird but I think depending on what it is, food is like art before being shoved in the mouth and chewed up!
Anyways I had steak last Sunday, this most recent Saturday night and this most recent Sunday night
It was just one of those days. Perfect temp outside and plenty of time to relax with a few cocktails before hand. Sat around and relaxed outside with a few gin and tonics. While maning the grill I did have the mandatory beer as the S.O.P. calls for.
So earlier I went to an upscale market. I say upscale because it wasn't a grocery store but more of a specialty store with higher grade meat and seafood and other things. I picked out 2 New York strips. Ive been a rib eye guy for several years now but wanted to change it up because I felt like it. Instead of the obligatory baked potato/starch I skipped that and had seafood on the side. I guess I could have had the potato, no disrespect towards it just a decision I made yesterday. So while at this market I picked out 4 scallops. Big daddies too, At least 2 inches wide and about 1.5 inches thick.
I marinated them in a marinade of olive oil, salt, pepper,red pepper flakes, garlic, lime juice and lime zest. Then grilled them.
I had to dress the steak up a little bit so I made a compound butter. Softened unsalted butter, crumbled maytag blue cheese, a little minced garlic and pepper. Refridgerated it until hard and then sliced a big piece off and put on the steaks when they were done. Also added a caesar salad. Turned out nice I must say.
Just thought I'd share for the hell of it. Some pics too since if there aren't any it didn't happen right?
