2 sauteed shrimp, the steamed asparagus and the Sauce Bearnaise.
Grill filet, 3 minutes per side for rare. For medium rare - 5 minutes per side. For medium doneness 8 minutes per side.
Sautée 4 U-15 shrimp in butter over medium-high heat until opaque, season with salt and white pepper. Add teaspoon of minced garlic and 2 ounces dry white wine.
Steam 4 spears of Asparagus that has been washed and trimmed.
Assemble the above cooked items and top with Bearnaise.
Sauce Bearnaise ( a classic sauce that requires a bit of work but is head and shoulders better than the dehydrated powdered form). This recipe is in restaurant proportions and should probably be reduced, on your next time around. This sauce needs to be made in a double boiler so.....

In a sautée pan over medium heat cook together
