Garlic Butter Grilled Steak & Shrimp



  1. First, mix together butter, garlic and fresh chopped parsley. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Heat a large grill over high heat. Lightly grease grill plates with oil. Pat steaks dry with paper towel. Brush lightly with oil and generously season with salt and pepper.
  3. Then, grill steaks for 4-5 minutes each side until browned and cooked to desired doneness. Spread half of the butter all over of steaks. Transfer steaks to a warm plate and let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. While steaks are resting, melt remaining butter. Season shrimp with salt and pepper. 
  5. Next, reduce heat to medium and grill your shrimp for 5-6 minutes, depending not the size and thickness of your shrimp. Flip each one halfway through cook time and continue cooking until they turn nice and pink in color while white and opaque on the inside.
  6. Toss remaining butter through shrimp and serve with steak!
