The term surf and turf simply means water and land, in other words seafood and meat from the land which typically is poultry and red meat (especially beef). I have made surf and turf without a side dish or an accompaniment, but this time I decided to make one with noodles (prawn and chicken).
The combination of seafood and red meat which depicts the term surf and turf in one dish is one to consider. I have thought to create mine with a white meat instead of beef. It sounds like going against gravity, LOL! I just have to create something new.
Surf and turf was considered often to symbolize the middle-class Continental cuisine of the 1960s and 1970s, with (frozen) lobster and steak as ersatz status foodstuffs for the middle class.
The name has been reappropriated ironically by more recent chefs such as Thomas Keller.
