Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

With the blender on, slowly drizzle in the melted butter. Turn off the blender, add in a little salt and cayenne and whip it again until combined. Add the chopped tarragon and pulse. Set aside.
  3. For the steak: Generously salt and pepper both sides of the steaks.

  5. Place the skillet in the oven to finish cooking the steaks. Cook until medium rare, 4 to 5 minutes. Cover loosely in foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  6. For the roasted asparagus: Put the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle over the olive oil and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Roast for 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. For the shrimp: Melt the butter in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute until pink and dark golden brown. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Set aside.
  8. Place each filet steak on a plate and place three to four asparagus spears on top. Pile on some sauteed shrimp and drizzle on some hollandaise Sprinkle on the parsley and serve.
