Grilled Shrimp and Shell Steak – Episode 38By
Shell Steak is not a cut I normally choose but when our local Fairway put the “PRIME” on sale well it was a no brainer and off I went to the market for the steak and steak only. Right. They had a huge assortment of bean sprouts, beans, peas, fruits, olive oils, and of course cheese that found their way into my cart. Oh well. I was also at Wine Library and the had picked up some smoked salt on a suggestion by a friend and was excited to use it on the steak. In the video I mention about keeping the steak on indirect heat for 15 minutes-in reality it was barely 10 minutes- every grill will be different and if you are not confident in the “poke” method for doneness(is that a word?) get yourself an instant read thermometer-Just like adding salt(you can always add more) better to go rarer and have to go back to the grill then to far done-no fix for that.
I grilled some shrimp and the steak and had it with the left over Farro salad which was great. It was a real pleasure to enjoy a nice “Prime” cut for a change so much so that my “Filet Mignon” only wife suggested I head back to get more “and ONLY the steak”, Yeah Right! Steve the Cheese dude at Fairway get ready cause the big Kahuna is heading your way!
