Ingredients

  • 2 3-oz beef tenderloin medallions
  • Olive oil cooking spray

SPICE RUB

  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika (Chef's Tip: Opt for the Hungarian variety.)
  • 1 tsp organic evaporated cane juice
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper

SAUTÉED SHRIMP

  • 4 shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • Pinch chile flakes

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, combine all spice rub ingredients. Using about 1 tbsp per beef medallion, coat both sides with mixture, gently rubbing into meat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. (TIP: Store leftover spice rub in an airtight container for up to six months.)
  2. In a small bowl, stir together all sautéed shrimp ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for 45 to 60 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°F. Mist a medium, ovenproof saucepan with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add beef and sear on one side for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn over, transfer pan to oven and roast to desired doneness; about 7 minutes for medium-rare or 9 to 10 minutes for medium. (Internal temperature should register 145°F when tested with an instant-read thermometer.)
  4. In a nonstick sauté pan on high, add shrimp and sauté for about 3 minutes, until just cooked through. Top beef tenderloin with shrimp.
