2 x 250gsteak I used sirloin, approx 250g each
2garlic cloves, minced
6large shrimp, peeled and deveined - leave tails on for presentation
1handful of samphireOptional
Pat your steaks with a paper handtowel to remove any extra moisture.
Place your non-stick frying pan or skillet onto medium-high heat. Season your steaks with salt and pepper just before places them into the pan.Cook for approx 5 - 7 mins on each side (depending on your preference and size of steak). Then remove to a plate, cover and let rest.
In the same pan (you may need to carefully mop up some fat if there's too much) gently place your shrimp in and cook until they turn pink - approx 1 - 3 min each side. Then remove.
Again, in the same pan (but make sure the pan isn't too hot otherwise the garlic will burn), add the oil, butter, garlic and chopped parsley (and chilli flakes if you want) until melted and mixed all together - approx 1 min.Now, arrange your steak on a plate with the shrimps on top and pour over the garlic and butter sauce.
*if you have samphire, quickly blanche in a pan of hot water - approx 1-2 mins - and scatter over the plate. NB: samphire is salty so you don't need to add any salt to the dish)
