Surf ‘n’ Turf: Tradition and ostentation combined in a plate.
Bringing together, in a single dish, meat from the land and the sea, to generate a unique flavour.
This is the premise of the expression Surf and Turf, Surf & Turf, or Surf ‘n’ Turf, which appears on haute cuisine menus and from time to time is the subject of culinary reality shows competitions.
Although it is now more inclusive, the term was coined in the United States in the 1960s to refer to a specific combination: lobster tail and beef tenderloin, which union symbolised the best of both worlds.
Although the Americans did the marketing for the business, surf n’ turf was and remains part of more cultures.
For example, a highlight for the Spanish gastronomy is the Valencian paella: a dish that combines seafood with poultry and red meat. As all the proteins compete for supremacy, it is very important to have a ‘link’ between them, which in this case, is the rice and the seasonings.
Another Hispanic example is the squid stuffed with bacon. So, we can prove that Spain has the clearest examples of Surf and Turf.
