Oh Surf & Turf, let us count the ways! There are so many ways to approach Surf & Turf that the options are virtually limitless, but if you want to keep things classic (with a twist), go for some delicious sautéed mushrooms and shallots, but toss in a few succulent Bay Scallops at the end to take things up to a whole new level!
