Fillet Mignon steak Oscar topped with shrimp, Alaskan King crab and béarnaise sauce make for an elegant New Year’s Eve dinner for two.
This recipe is definitely a special occasion dinner. We went with high end ingredients that are a little more pricey but for special occasions like New Years Eve dinner for two at home, Valentines Day or even a birthday we think its worth it!
This is a pan roasted Fillet Mignon topped with oven baked shrimp, oven baked Alaskan King Crab legs and of course béarnaise sauce. Decadent & rich dinner you can easily make at home.
Oscar style is just a way of serving the steak, my husband isn’t a fan of béarnaise sauce so for him I made gourmet sides like twice baked potatoes and garlic butter button mushrooms like you would get from a steakhouse and still topped his steak with garlic butter, fresh parsley, shrimp and crab.
For the Fillet Mignon, all you need is simple ingredients like melted butter, salt & pepper and fresh chopped parsley. Coat the steaks in melted butter and season all over with salt & pepper and add to a hot cast iron pan or stainless steel skillet that is loaded with butter. For that delicious steakhouse feeling, cook the steak on one side for about 3-4 minutes until a golden exterior crust starts to form and flip your steak over then transfer the pan to the oven. Roast the Fillets for about 10 minutes or more depending on thickness. Transfer the meat to a cutting board and tent with foil. Its important to let the meat rest before serving to avoid the juices from getting all over your plate. When ready to serve garnish the Fillets with melted butter and fresh chopped parsley.
There’s nothing quite like a delicious creamy béarnaise sauce to elevate your meals. If you love eggs benedict which is served with hollandaise then you’ll love this béarnaise sauce which gets a lot of its flavor from fresh tarragon and shallots.
Don’t be intimidated by the king crab, its simple to make and can be baked in the oven. Simple seasoning of garlic butter really enhances the flavor. You can find Alaskan King Crab Legs at your local Costco or fish mongers.
For a complete meal feel free to serve this dish with roasted asparagus, twice baked potato or fresh greens.
Happy New Year Everyone!
