Anytime you mix meat and seafood, you can call it surf and turf and I’m here to give you all of the options available on Or Whatever You Do to make your next Surf & Turf feast amazing. 

Why do they call it surf and turf?

It came by its name by referring to the diets of the main protein. Or maybe where they are typically found. Fish and seafood being found in the sea, or surf, and turf what the cows munch on. 

What types of meat are usually in Surf and Turf?

When you see surf and turf recipes online, you’re most likely seeing combinations of steak and shrimp most often.

That doesn’t mean that is what it is limited to, however.
