Filet Mignon and Shrimp

Last night for dinner I made some Filet Mignon topped with lemon butter dill sauce; with Shrimp and a side of Sauted Broccolini, Baby Portobello Mushrooms, Leeks, Garlic and Olive oil.  A filling meal but yet light on the belly.  The aroma of everything cooking was delish.  If you haven’t had broccolini before, give it a try.  It tastes like broccoli of course but there is something about that has a yummier texture.

Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. A natural hybrid of the cabbage family Brassica oleracea italica x alboglabra, it was developed by the Sakata Seed Company of Yokohama, Japan, with the name Chinese kale or gai lan. Broccolini’s flavor is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus

  1. Looks really nice, I used to have Fillet Mignon as a benchmark test for new restaurants, now I don’t eat beef at all. Wonder if Chicken Mignon would be too out there 🙂
