Steak in Creamy Cajun Shrimp Sauce (Surf and Turf)

I always enjoy steak for Valentine’s Day and things only get better when you add some seafood (surf and turf) like in this steak in creamy cajun shrimp sauce. This recipe is so easy to make! You pretty much just season the steaks in cajun seasoning (I like to make my own to control the amount of salt in it), sear them and set them aside before starting on the shrimp sauce in the same pan. The shrimp sauce is a simple butter, garlic and cream based sauce along with the shrimp and more cajun seasoning that is finished off with parmesan cheese; basically a cajun take on an alfredo sauce! Once everything is done you serve the steaks smothered in the creamy cajun shrimp sauce and enjoy!
