February 29: National Surf and Turf Day

Surf and Turf - a common menu option in steakhouses.  I've only ever seen surf and turf as steak and lobster, but some places will serve shrimp instead of lobster. has a page touching on the history of surf and turf.  Interestingly enough, it seems that "surf and turf" is a relatively new thing in the culinary world with the first mention in the 60s.  There isn't a whole lot out there about surf and turf but The Nibble does a good job of rounding up what information is available. 

When I think about the nutrition of the average surf and turf dish, I can't help but think it's probably a good thing that National Surf and Turf Day is celebrated once every four years.
