Surf and Turf Nachos

A Valentine’s dinner at a chain will set you back $40 per person. You may get a little lobster, but probably just shrimp, an 8-ounce sirloin, and your choice of broccoli and a baked potato. It will be pleasant and forgettable. This, I think, is not going to be the same old thing. Buttery lobster, medium rare mock tender steak, six cheese Italian mix, pickled onions on top of crunchy tortilla chips. There is also some roasted tomatoes and some chives for freshness. This could also be an untraditional Valentine dinner and maybe pop for a bottle of wine. I hope you like it.

2 10-ounce Chuck eye steaks
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
2 8-ounce lobster tails
1 stick butter
1 clove minced garlic
16 ounces cherry tomatoes
2 ounces olive oil
12 ounces tortilla chips
8 ounces 6 cheese Italian blend
8 ounces favorite salsa
Salt and pepper
1 jalapeño pepper

Preheat oven to 350.

Top steak on both sides with 1/2 of Old Bay and pepper.

On a foil-lined baking sheet add tomatoes and olive oil.

In a small pan melt butter, remaining Old Bay and minced garlic clove.

Add cut open lobster shell to butter; cook for 10 minutes at medium low, flipping occasionally.

Heat oven-safe non-stick skillet to medium high.

Cook steak for 3 minutes on each side.

Place steak in oven and cook for 10 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes. Slice in 1/4 inch slices.

Remove lobster from the shell and chop.

Place tortilla chips on a baking sheet. Top with cheese and bake for 5 minutes.
