A Very Impressive Meal

This gourmet meal is super easy to make and looks like you went to a 5-star restaurant!

You may want to add some breadsticks to dip in the delicious remaining wine sauce.

When I made this for my husband, he in awe of how this tasted and loved it.

We are both big seafood lovers here, this was just an over the top meal.

Then I made this delicious cheesecake for dessert.

I took the easy way out used my slow cooker cheesecake recipe, it was so decadent!

We Love Crab Legs!

We usually buy around 2 lbs of extra crab legs, so we will have an additional surf with this turf.

Also as a side dish to go with your steak, I suggest garlic mashed potatoes go well, or my
creamy bacon potatoes or just add a fresh garden salad.

We love surf and turf!

Of course, you can cook whatever cut of meat you like.

Even though this is a very tender cut of meat using the filet mignon, a more flavorful cut would be a boneless ribeye.

I have used ribeye in the past also, you can improvise with anything you like.

Start out by grilling on high heat!

Make sure you start out with high heat for a good sear to lock in the juices, then lower the temp and cook the meat how you love it!

I like to get a good looking char on my steak on both sides and pink in the middle, my husband likes his medium rare.

You will have to be the grilling expert for your family and cook the steaks how you like them

One tip I can give you, I use a meat thermometer as I surely do not want to ruin this expensive filet mignon by guessing.

Grill any kind of seafood

You can top this with just crabmeat, all shrimp, lobster meat or scallops.

Any kind of shelled seafood goes great with this dish except I am not too fond of clams.

There is no right or wrong, make the seafood your family enjoys and any combination.

What an awesome sauce!

This buttery sauce is amazing.

You will love how it enhances the seafood topping and melt in your mouth steak!

Any garlic bread or breadsticks are great dipped in this marvelous wine sauce.

Garlic sauteed

Make sure you watch the garlic closely. Burnt garlic is the worse taste and smell to me!

It should just be sauteed on very low heat just until it starts to get golden, not brown!

Then add whatever is needed next.

A Meal For Special Occasions

This filet mignon meal is usually for an anniversary dinner or special birthday meal.

Of course, it's a little pricey to make any day of the week.

I always like to make something over the top like this dish when it an important day.

This Filet Mignon meal is easier than you think to make.

Grill or Pan Fry

Our family loves seafood and steak combinations.

This is made on special events and occasions and particularly wonderful for a quiet anniversary dinner!

If you can't grill it's ok, just broil or pan fry your filet in your home in some butter.

Even cooking on a cast iron griddle skillet works well like I do my burgers!

The seafood can be prepared in a frying pan and sauteed in butter.

Get a grocery list of what you need first!

I always make a list of the ingredients. The last thing you need is to run out of something in a brand new recipe.

I love using all fresh ingredients but if you get canned crab meat get a good premium grade.

I usually buy fresh crab and take it out of the legs to put in my wine sauce.

Look for the best cuts of meat!

Filet Mignon Topped with Portabello, Shrimp, Crab with Creamy Italian Garlic Wine Sauce, isn't an inexpensive meal.

Make sure when you are purchasing the meat, you find a well-marbled piece of meat.

The filet has less fat but you do want some fat in it for flavor.

I just love this combination of flavors, especially this butter sauce.

This is a gourmet meal fit for a King!

Change it Up!

I know some folks are allergic to seafood.

You can add vegetables on top if you want to substitute the seafood.

Asparagus works well with the wine sauce and so does spinach.

This filet mignon can be tailored to how you and your family like your steak.

Just portabello mushrooms are fine too.

The meal will still taste like you are in a 5-star Restaurant!

This is a gourmet filet cut of steak topped with a rich buttery wine sauce mixed with crab and shrimp


  • 2  Filet Mignon
  • 4  extra-large Shrimp or more or use scallops, lobster pieces or other fish you like

  • 3  tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2  cup heavy cream
  • 3  cloves of fresh minced garlic
  • Sea Salt, Pepper,
  • 1  stick butter


How to cook Filet Mignon Topped Seafood

  1. Saute the minced garlic in one tablespoon butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil till just turning golden. 
  2. Remove half of the garlic to put on top of the meat, shrimp, and mushrooms.
  3. Boil a pound of crab legs, remove the shell and retain meat in a small bowl.
  4. On a hot heated outdoor grill on high heat, add a dab of butter on both sides of the filet's, add salt and pepper, sear meat on both sides. 
  5. Lower heat and cook to your desired doneness. Grill portabello mushrooms and seafood of choice, scallops, shrimp, lobster on the grill seasoned with salt pepper and butter. 
  6. These cook fairly quick, set aside.
  7. While the filet is cooking make the wine sauce:
  8. 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic
  9. 1/4 cup of white wine
  10. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  11. 3 tablespoons butter
  12. salt and white pepper
  13. Extra virgin olive oil
  14. Use remaining sauteed garlic, add wine in a small heavy frypan on low heat, and boil to reduce wine to half. 
  15. Stir in the heavy cream, bring to a low boil till smooth. 
  16. Keep on low heat, add the butter, to the wine, stirring with a wooden spoon, continually till butter is melted and wine sauce is slightly thickened. 
  17. I always double this recipe as we love the sauce with extra crab legs to dip them in.
  18. Place filet on a plate add slices of portabello mushrooms, shrimp, crab to the center of the filet, add white wine garlic sauce in a generous portion over the top of each filet. Add parsley garnish and serve.
