Filet Mignon with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce


I am a big fan of combining steak and seafood. This is a cheaper option than a jumbo lump crabmeat recipe I enjoy as well. Hope you find it tasty.

2 servings


  • 2 (4 ounce) 1 1/2 inch thick filet mignon steaks

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • salt to taste

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large shallot, minced

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • ¼ cup Chardonnay wine

  • ½ pound uncooked shrimp - peeled, deveined, and cut into 3 pieces

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a heavy steel or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of each filet with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Gently place the filets into the hot skillet, and cook until they start to become firm and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Set the filets aside to rest, covered loosely with foil.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter with 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the skillet over medium heat until the foam subsides from the butter. Cook and stir the shallot and garlic until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in the wine, and cook and stir until the wine reduces by half, about 3 minutes.

  3. Stir in the shrimp, cream, 1 tablespoon of butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir until the sauce is thickened and velvety and the shrimp are pink, about 2 minutes.

  4. To serve, place filets on serving plates, and top each with half the shrimp sauce. Sauce will thicken slightly as it cools.
