Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to surprise your loved one with a special meal, and nothing says “I love you” like a homemade meal made with love. Here’s a recipe for a delicious and romantic Valentine’s Day dinner that’s sure to impress:
- 2 8 oz. filet mignons
- 2 6 oz. lobster tails
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 tbsp. butter
- 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
- Season the filet mignons with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the steaks and sear for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the steaks from the skillet and set aside.
- Add the lobster tails to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
- Place the steaks and lobster tails on a baking sheet and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes for medium-rare, or until cooked to your liking.
- While the steaks and lobster tails are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
- Remove the steaks and lobster tails from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.
- Place the steaks and lobster tails on plates and spoon the garlic butter over the top. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
This meal is perfect for a romantic dinner for two, and it’s sure to impress your loved one. The tender filet mignon paired with the succulent lobster tail is the ultimate surf and turf experience, and the garlic butter adds a delicious, savory flavor. Serve with a side of roasted vegetables, salad, and a glass of red wine for an exceptional Valentine’s Day dinner.
You can also add a dessert and make the dinner even more unique, like Chocolate covered strawberries, a homemade chocolate cake, or a tiramisu.
Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s day!
