For the Blackening Seasoning:

1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust according to heat preference)
Salt and black pepper, to taste

For the Steak and Shrimp:

2 steaks (such as ribeye or sirloin), about 6–8 ounces each
12 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Olive oil

For the Alfredo Sauce:

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Pasta:

8 ounces fettuccine or your choice of pasta


Prepare the Blackening Seasoning:

In a small bowl, combine paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.

Season and Cook the Steak and Shrimp:

Rub the steaks and shrimp generously with the blackening seasoning.
Heat a little olive oil in a skillet over high heat. Sear the steaks for about 4-5 minutes per side (or to desired doneness), then remove and let them rest.
In the same skillet, cook the shrimp for about 2 minutes per side, or until opaque and cooked through. Remove and set aside.
Cook the Pasta:

Cook the fettuccine according to package instructions until al dente, then drain.
Make the Alfredo Sauce:

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
Add the heavy cream, bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low.
Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted and smooth. Season with salt and pepper.


Toss the cooked pasta with the Alfredo sauce until well coated.
Slice the rested steak into thin strips.

Plate the Alfredo pasta, top with sliced steak and shrimp. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley, or a squeeze of lemon if desired.
