I have made this for special occassions however, I put asparagus into the pocket with the lobster and served with a hollindais sauce. It has a beautiful presentation when sliced and all are quite impressed. Along with are twice baked cheese potatoes and the rest of the asparagus. Really super and not all that hard.
this was avsolutely wonderful-as always i used garlic cloves and omitted the garlic salt-i chopped the cloves and tucked them inside the pocket and on top of the lobster tails. this is very impressive looking and very good the sauce is really a nice combination and very flavorful.
If you want to impress a bunch of dinner guest, I can't think of a better way than this version of surf and turf. Easy to prepare, easy to enjoy. I put the sauce in ramekins over candles for dipping, in addition to what was poured over the dish.
ohhhhh my goodness, this was so good and easy too. i used two filet mignon tenderloin steaks b/c i didn't need so many servings. my husband LOVED it and didn't even want the sauce. the sauce was just so-so in my opinion but maybe it was b/c i substituted garlic and forgot to add salt. also, if i were to do it again, i'd lightly season the outside of the steaks with salt and pepper and broil instead of bake for a little more color and flavor. as it was, it took about 15-20 mins. to bring the two small filets to medium rare (total weight about .75 of a pound). fantastic!
I made this for my valentine sweety, we were very impressed with the simplicity of preperation and the sophisticated outcome. I made my own sauce from 1/4 cup butter, 2 cloves of garlic, a small can of blended asparagus and a bit of pepper.
This recipe is elegant and delicious...I used chopped garlic in place of the garlic salt, and used Marsala wine, 1 c., in place of the Dry White wine...I added 1/2 c. sliced mushrooms to the wine sauce, and let simmer for about 5 mins. It added a nice taste to the dish...I also thickened the pan juices from the wine with a little bit of cornstarch and water, then poured it over the sliced meat...DELISH!
