Ribeye Steak and Shrimp with Parmesan Sauce

This Applebee’s Copycat Ribeye Steak and Shrimp with Parmesan Sauce is amazing! Tender, juicy grilled Ribeye steak is topped with seasoned grilled shrimp and a savory Parmesan cheese sauce.

This recipe is moderately low-carb, but not necessarily by Keto extreme low-carb guidelines.

Scroll to bottom for full recipe card with ingredients.

We have swapped out sirloin for Ribeye and grilled the shrimp instead of pan-frying.

The cheese sauce is delicious and very versatile! Try pouring it over your chicken, mashed potatoes, or broccoli dishes.

This low-carb dish is the perfect easy surf and turf dinner for two, ready in just 30 minutes.

This dish goes great served with this Mashed Potato Casserole for Two, these Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes, or these Cheesy Twice Baked Potatoes for Two.

How to make Ribeye Steak and Shrimp with Parmesan Sauce:

If you’re grilling the shrimp on wooden skewers soak the skewers in water first for about 20 minutes while the sauce cooks.  Click here for Bamboo skewers.

For the Sauce:

Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan and simmer on medium low, about 20 minutes stirring often.

Stir in the Parmesan cheese, basil, salt and pepper.

Lower the heat and keep warm while you prepare the steak and shrimp.

For the steak:

Season the steak to your preference. We like just salt and fresh cracked black pepper as the sauce has great flavor already.

Cook the steaks either on the stove in a frying pan or outside the grill, until done to your liking.

These 1/2 inch thick steaks took about 4 minutes per side on our gas grill. We like ours done to medium rare.

For the shrimp:

At the same time, add the shrimp to the pre-soaked skewers.

Melt the butter in the microwave approximately 20 – 30 seconds and brush it onto the shrimp.

Sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning.
