Use your grill to make this simple and delicious surf and turf meal





  • 24 med-large raw peeled shrimp with tails on
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt and pepper


  1. If using wooden skewers, place in water and soak for at least 1 hour prior to grilling so they don’t catch fire. I prefer to use reusable metal skewers for the grill
  2. Defrost shrimp if frozen
  3. Mince garlic
  4. Cube sirloin into bite-size cubes
  5. Add shrimp to one bowl and cubed steak to another
  6. Toss the shrimp in avocado oil, lemon juice, and minced garlic
  7. Toss the steak cubes in avocado oil, coconut aminos, and minced garlic
  8. Cover the two bowls and let marinate in the fridge for about an hour
  9. Skewer the shrimp and steak on separate skewers
  10. Heat the grill over medium-high heat
  11. When the grill is warm, add the skewers to the grill
  12. Cook the shrimp for 3 minutes each side and remove from grill
  13. Cook the steak for about 12 minutes total rotating every 3 minutes – keep the grill closed between rotations
  14. Allow the steak to rest for 10 minutes prior to eating!
