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

The Parmesan cheese and basil sauce is delicious and very versatile! Try pouring it over your chicken, mashed potatoes, or steamed vegetables.

This low-carb dish is the perfect easy surf and turf romantic 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 Steak and Shrimp Parmesan:

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 Parmesan Cheese 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 black pepper as the sauce has great flavor already.

Cook the steaks either on the stove in a frying pan or outside on 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. I buy shrimp that is already peeled and deveined, and sometimes with the tails already removed.

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

Sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning.

Grill the shrimp over medium high heat, or pan fry, until pink and opaque flipping over half way through, about 2 minutes on each side. Click here for Old Bay Seasoning.
