4 8/12 jumbo shrimp
1/4 c. red Hawaiian salt, for seasoning
4 Tbs. fresh cracked black pepper, for seasoning
3 Tbs. vegetable oil

4 c. arugula
2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil

To make the sauce
In a saucepot over high heat, brown the shiitake mushrooms in 2 Tbs. of the vegetable oil until caramelized, about 4 minutes.  Add the whipping cream and reduce by half; this should take about 3 minutes.  Add the veal demi-glaze, turn down the heat to low and simmer for about 4 minutes.  Whisk in the butter until smooth.  Reserve for later.
To prepare the meat and shrimp
Season the beef on both sides with the salt and pepper.  In a hot sauté pan over high heat, sear the meat for about 2 minutes per side.  Remove the meat from the pan and let it rest.  Drain off the fat from the pan, add the remaining 1 Tbs. of vegetable oil to the same pan and cook the salt and pepper seasoned shrimp for about 3 minutes, until just opaque.  Remove from the pan and let rest.
For the salad bed
In a mixing bowl, combine the arugula, olive oil and lemon juice.  Divide the arugula into four equal portions.  Make a bed of the arugula in the center of each place.  lace two medallions of the meat on each bed of arugula.  Ladle 2 Tbs. of sauce onto the meat.  Place the shrimp on top.  Garnish with tobiko and chive sticks.
