Fillet Steak with Scallops and White Wine Sauce

Without a doubt my favourite food is fillet steak and scallops. And although I’ve posted this creation before (in another form) this version is my most bloody, tasty effort to date.

To create this sumptuous feast you will need:

Meat

  • Fillet Steak
  • Scallops (Canadian are the best you can get in the UK)
  • Olive Oil

Mushroom Side

  • Chestnut Mushrooms
  • Soy Sauce
  • Mixed Dried Herbs
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil

White Wine Sauce

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • White Wine
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Creme Fraiche
  • Butter

Method

Make the sauce first. Chop the onion and garlic and cook in olive oil until soft. Add half a glass of wine and a glug of vinegar and boil down until most of the liquid is gone. Then stir in the creme fraiche and heat. Add some butter and whisk it in. Season then keep warm.

Now cut the mushrooms in half, put in a tray and drizzle with olive oil, soy sauce and sprinkle with herbs and salt and pepper. Pop in the oven for about 20 mins.

Its time for the main event. Hopefully you will have had presence of forethought to rub olive oil on your steak and scallops. Heat up a griddle until its starting to glow red hot (well you know as hot as it will get). Then slap on the steak. Cook for about 4 mins each side (depending on thickness). If you don’t like rare steak don’t eat fillet! Put the scallops on for the last couple of minutes

Serve this mega bad boy up with big fat chunky chips!!!!

  1. Canadian scallops are the best you can get in the UK? Rarely read such nonsense. I’ve had incredible local scallops from Devon and Cornwall to Scotland and plenty of places between.

  2. Currently really hate you , showing all these lovely delicious recipes, grrrrrr

    Gone are the days we can afford steak in my house…..one of my all-time favourite meals though, when life picks up I will definately be testing this one out!
