Filet Mignon Topped with Portabello,Shrimp,Crab with Creamy Italian Garlic Wine Sauce

Sunday, February 28, 2010
Filet Mignon, add grilled portabello mushrooms, grilled shrimp on the sides, an abundance of crab in the center, pour a creamy wine sauce over the crap and around the shrimp. Delectable through every bite!

 You may want to add some bread sticks to dip in the delicious remaining wine sauce. We usually buy around 2 lbs of extra crab legs, so we will have an additional surf with this turf.

Also a side of garlic mashed potatoes goes well, or parsley potatoes, then indulge by pouring some more of that wine sauce over them...

Flipping once. This will leave a medium pink center, cooking for 6 minutes on each side.

Start off with high heat to sear both sides, then lower the flame, this seals in the juice. Shrimp and mushrooms take around 5 to 7 minutes. Take them off first. Unless you eat your meat rare.

Cook till wine is reduced in half and heavy cream has thickened.

Sauteed garlic, some is on the shrimp and mushrooms, save some for the the wine sauce.
Butter, salt, pepper and minced garlic on top, ready for the grill.

Shrimp, shelled ready for the recipe, crab meat.....

Soon to be grilled portabello mushrooms~

Crab, butter, heavy cream, white wine, garlic, sea salt and pepper. This is my first favorite food, second is Filet!

Two beautiful filet's. Guess whose favorite cut of meat this is.....yep you guessed mine!

2 Filet Mignon

4 extra large Shrimp or more

1 package of Portabello Mushrooms sliced

1 cup of Alaskian King or Snow Crab legs or lumb canned crabmeat, shelled and set aside in bowl

1/4 cup Chablis White Wine

3 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 pint of heavy cream

3 cloves of fresh minced garlic

Sea Salt, Pepper,

1 stick Butter

Saute garlic in one tablespoon butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil till just turning golden. Remove half of the garlic to put on top of meat, shrimp and mushrooms.

Boil a pound of crab legs, remove shell and retain meat in a small bowl.

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. Lower heat and cook to your desired doneness. Grill portabello mushrooms and shrimp, on the grill seasoned with salt pepper and butter. These cook fairly quick, set aside.

While the filet is cooking make the sauce.

2 cloves of fresh minced garlic

1/4 cup of white wine

1/2 cup heavy cream

3 tablespoons butter

salt and white pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

Use remaining sauteed garlic, add wine in a small heavy frypan on low heat and boil to reduce wine to half. Stir in the heavy cream, bring to a low boil till smooth. Keep on low heat, add the butter, to the wine, stirring with wooden spoon, continually till butter is melted and wine sauce is slightly thickened . I always double this recipe as we love the sauce with extra crab legs to dip them in.

Place filet on a plate add slices of portabello mushrooms, shrimp, crab to center of the filet, add white wine garlic sauce in a generous portion over the top of each filet. Add parsley garnish and serve.
