Cheesy Steak and Lobster Fries

surf and turf fries

Lobster fries have been blowing up my instagram feed lately. Everyone is serving up crispy salty fries covered in lobster to celebrate summer. This is a trend I can definitely get on board with! I wanted to add something a little extra because I just don’t seem to know when to stop. These fries are coated with a light dusting of seasoning salt, warm queso drizzled on top then piled with lobster and a side of steak. ┬áThese surf and turf fries bring a whole new meaning to summer dinner.

Did I mention the red wine mushroom sauce drizzled over the steak? This sauce mixed with the cheese and fries is pure heaven. Lobster and steak are fairly lean proteins, but adding this cheese and buttery wine sauce turns the meal into quite the indulgence.

I remember growing up and thinking surf and turf was a dinner special for retired people. Now as a 30 year old woman I know surf and turf is just special and it is for all people. The first time I had a surf and turf special it was a seared ribeye topped with shrimp and garlic butter. I didn’t think there could be anything better. Now I know there is. This cheese. This filet. This buttery lobster. Seriously a match made in heaven.
