Paleo Day 20: Surf & Turf Recipe

Other than dinner, this was a day of left overs. The best thing about making a great meal (other than eating it) is having left overs to eat again the next day. Also- holy crap you guys! Tomorrow is day 21 of my 21 day challenge! I'm almost there!!! Do you want me to keep posting all my eats or just new recipes? I haven't decided yet.

 Dinner was so freaking fantastic last night that I was more than happy to eat it again today for lunch.
Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs cooked in bacon fat & leftover brussels sprouts.
Lunch: leftover Crudo of escolar & ahi tuna with a toasted sesame vinaigrette & shaved macadamia nuts, find the recipe here.
 When I bought this celery earlier in the week I brought it home, washed it all, cut them up and separated it all into bags with 6 pieces each. It makes it so much easier to grab them for a quick snack.
 Let the dinner magic begin: mashed cauliflower- even better than mashed potatoes if you ask me.

Mashed cauliflower: I chopped up an entire head of cauliflower and boiled it, dumbed it all in the blender with half a stick of butter and some (full fat) sour cream, salt, pepper, garlic then put it in a pot for a few minutes and added graded asiago cheese and some fresh rosemary from our back yard. 

Snack: 2 celery stalks with almond butter.
Surf & Turf: oh man this is where it starts getting amazing. Matt seared lamb in a pan with salt, black pepper, garlic, red wine, fresh rosemary (from our backyard) and olive oil. On the other side he cooked some jumbo shrimp I got from the fish market (local fresh caught) last night. The shrimp was cooked with garlic, a bay leaf, olive oil and a lot of butter was involved, oh yea! and he made pesto butter so there are also pine nuts in it.
How incredible does that lamb look?!!
Dinner: Surf & Turf of roasted lamb chop, pesto butter shrimp scampi with pine nuts, cauliflower mash & french beans.
 Matt's beautiful (as always) presentation. He loves making my food look pretty. 
We are making Navrathan Korma some time this weekend AND homemade venison jerky! I will post that Korma recipe later and let you know how the jerky turns out. (I love having a dehydrator- definitely worth investing in one if you don't already have one.)
