Meat or Seafood?  Seafood or Meat?  What to do for Father’s Day?  Why choose?  Instead make my Surf and Turf, Grilled Steak and Shrimp with Peach Chipotle Blue Cheese Butter.    On a special day like Father’s Day, I like to make something a little more decadent.  I may allot myself a few more calories but still want the food to be overall healthy.

This recipe for Surf and Turf fits the bill.  I happened to use a hanger steak but other healthy choices would be sirloin or a filet mignon.  If you aren’t worried about the calories and fat than a rib-eye would be my choice.  If you don’t eat read meat, put some of this incredible butter on a pork chop or a chicken.  This is a very versatile dish.  The star is the compound butter.

Talking about Peach Chipotle Blue Cheese Butter, here are a few tips.  Use fresh peaches, if possible.  I first tried this recipe with some “lite” canned peaches.  Yuck!  I did not like the peaches at all.  So if you are going to use canned, use a  really good brand.  For the best results, buy your peaches a few days before.  It’s OK if they aren’t ripe.  Put them in a brown bag on the counter and check each day to see if they are ripe.  You want a ripe peach so it is easy to peel off the skin.

As for the chipotle, I wish someone would sell a small tube of already pureed chipotle in adobo sauce.  A few years ago I wrote to Amore, a company that sells tomato paste in a tube and asked if they would make a tube of pureed chipotle in adobo sauce.  I guess they didn’t think it was a good idea because I’ve never seen it.  So I buy one of those small cans and puree the entire contents in my food processor.  Then I put it in a labeled small baggy and freeze it.  Then I can cut off a piece whenever I need it.  Wouldn’t a tube be so much easier?  Don’t you think it would be a good idea?  Maybe I should patent it and make it myself 🙂

Grilling the steak and shrimp:
