"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Coat both sides of the filets with the seasoning-mixture by patting the fillet with your fingers and seasoning. Heat a large skillet over high heat until a drop of water sizzles on it.
