First Surf n’ Turf?
People have long argued whether the first ever Surf N’ Turf hailed from the West or East Coast, some believe that it’s origins began at the Eye of The Needle restaurant in Seattle, Washington while others believe it was first advertised in our home state, in Lowell, Massachusetts in the early 1960’s. Despite which you believe to be true, something we can all agree on is Surf N’ Turf is one of the most mouth-watering, craved dishes in the United States year after year. For those of you who have yet to try, it is seafood and steak. Usually lobster and steak to be precise. Two delicious and usually separate dishes combined together to create a unique taste and dining experience.
Within the Surf N Turf, it is coated with a garlic butter sauce which helps melt the flavors of the seafood and the meat together. The meat is typically a Filet Mignon or Sirloin steak, and the seafood can be lobster, shrimp, crab or really whatever your heart desires. To be frank, the dish is great. It’s an experience that everyone should at least try, but not all of this dish is made the same in terms of quality.
A quality Surf n Turf has boiled seafood, a steak cooked the way that the customer wants, and seasoning. With so much going on for your pallet, it’s important that the chef pays attention to the details of the seasoning within the meat, and also has the garlic butter to melt into the meal itself. Surf N Turf is believed to be of the high art, due to the combination of two delicacies and foods that customers frequently crave. What started as a meal that someone might have once a year, quickly became a cult-classic meal throughout the United States.
