Filet Mignon with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce



Ingredients :

  • 2 (4 ounce) 1 1/2 inch thick filet mignon steaks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large shallot
  • minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • ¼ cup Chardonnay wine
  • ½ pound uncooked shrimp – peeled
  • deveined
  • and cut into 3 pieces
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Methods :

  • Heat a heavy steel or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of each filet with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Gently place the filets into the hot skillet, and cook until they start to become firm and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Set the filets aside to rest, covered loosely with foil.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter with 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the skillet over medium heat until the foam subsides from the butter. Cook and stir the shallot and garlic until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in the wine, and cook and stir until the wine reduces by half, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the shrimp, cream, 1 tablespoon of butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir until the sauce is thickened and velvety and the shrimp are pink, about 2 minutes.
  • To serve, place filets on serving plates, and top each with half the shrimp sauce. Sauce will thicken slightly as it cools.
