Surf and Turf Stuffed Potatoes are topped with pan-seared steak and shrimp and homemade onion rings. These decadent potatoes are worth all the calories.
Stuffed potato is not usually a fixture on my plate, because the added accoutrements can make the dish extremely caloric. I would rather rack up my calorie count on other items. So, when I have a stuffed Idaho, it has to be irresistible and worth all the calories. The addition of steak and shrimp makes the spud glorious on so many levels, making it a must eat item.
I sear the steak and shrimp, a protein marriage made in heaven, in butter. Of course, you can go lighter and use olive oil, but the butter adds more richness and flavor. To complete the surf and turf theme, there is also homemade onion rings. The light and crispy rings provide a nice textural contrast to the creamy potato and tender chew of the meat. As for the potato, it is simply seasoned with melted garlic-chive butter. Again, you can cut out some calories and replace butter mixture with light sour cream and chive. But for me, this dish is all about the butter and of course the steak and shrimp…and onion rings…and oh yeah, the potato…for without it, we would have just naked surf and turf.
