> > For most folks with ordinary disposable income, it used to be that “Surf & Turf ” was a “special occasion dish”, something you ordered on your anniversary or birthday at that special place you went to once or maybe twice a year. As for myself, ditto, – plus I would not normally think of cooking meat and seafood at home for one dish, it is usually Either – Or .
It just so happened tonight that I had a craving for shrimp and steak. Since I live alone with Bella, it felt okay to just serve everything at once, instead of eating it divided into three courses, as would be more traditional and “proper”.
So, instead of the menu being:
“Sautéed Shrimp In Garlic Butter” “Hearts of Romaine Lettuce In Raspberry Vinaigrette” “Aged Rib Eye Steak With Spicy Herb Butter And Toasted Sour Dough Bread”
Back in my youth, in Germany and Austria you were able to order this breakfast dish in any Hotel and in many “Gaststaetten” , mostly for breakfast but also as a snack during any time of the day or evening. Of course at that time there was freshly ground pepper instead of the sriracha sauce, but other than that, strammer max has not changed in a hundred years. Obviously, it is as simple and good today as it was then 🙂 Toast a good bread of your choice until golden, spread with roasted garlic paste, top with sauted ham and fried egg (add sliced cheese between ham and egg if you prefer), drizzle some sriracha and sprinkle with fresh herbs. Accompany with a small salad and ketchup and scotch bonnet sauce. . .
