Ingredients: Bone In New York Strip Steak
Salt Block
BeaZell's Cajun Seasoning (2 1/2 tablespoons)
Garlic Powder (2 tablespoons)
Black Pepper (2 tablespoons)
Fresh Gulf Shrimp (about 10-12)
Olive Oil (2-3 tablespoons)
High temp oil (such as peanut oil)
Baking Potato (1 large, as side dish)

Recipe: Begin by mixing BeaZell's Cajun Seasoning (2 1/2 tbsp), garlic powder (2 tbsp), and black pepper (2 tbsp) in small bowl.
Use this mixture to season both sides of the steak, set remaining seasoning aside.
Let steak sit on counter and come down to room temperature.
Clean and de-vein the shrimp, leaving shell on.
Place shrimp in bowl and drizzle olive oil overtop, then sprinkle the rest of the seasoning mixture over shrimp and mix until all shrimp are coated evenly. Make sure to get seasoning inside the shrimp where they were cut to be de-veined.
Return shrimp to refrigerator until ready to cook.
Take salt block and place in cold oven.
Pre-heat oven on low heat (250F-275F). As oven comes to temperature, the excess moisture will evaporate from the salt block.
Once at temperature, increase heat to 300F for 15 minutes.
Increase oven temp to 350F and keep salt block in for 5 minutes.
Then increase temp to 375F for 5 additional minutes.
Finally, increase oven temp to 400F for 5 minutes, then remove salt block.
Place charcoal on grill outside and light.
Place salt block on charcoal grill rack and cover to heat for 10 minutes.
Return to steak and blot off excess seasoning.
Baste both sides of steak with high temp oil.
Remove lid, place steak on salt block and cook uncovered.
Cook steak about 5-7 minutes, then flip.
Continue cooking another 5-7 minutes.
Then place steak directly on grill rack to sear for 1 minute on each side.
Remove steak from heat and set aside to rest.
Blot excess seasoning from steak off salt block.
Place gulf shrimp on salt block and cook about 2 minutes.
Flip shrimp and cook an additional 2 minutes until done.
Remove shrimp from heat.
Prepare and bake your potato as a side dish.
Plate steak, shrimp, and baked potato and enjoy!!
