RECIPE: New York Strip Steak With Spot Prawn Scampi
- 6 Certified Angus Beef® strip steaks, about 1 1/4-inch thick
- 5 teaspoons salt, divided
- 2 1/2 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper, divided
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 2 lb Jumbo Black Tiger Prawns or 1lb Spot Prawn Tail-On, thawed
- 6 tablespoons butter, divided
- 3 cloves garlic, minced

- Prepare grill by having two heat zones: 1) high heat and 2) medium heat with a medium cast iron pan placed on the grate.
- Pat prawns dry with a paper towel. In a mixing bowl, toss prawns with canola oil, 1-teaspoon salt and 1/2-teaspoon pepper.
