Season steaks with salt, pepper and drizzle olive oil on both sides. Set aside to rest for 30 minutes.

Smash garlic with a pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle. Scoop out garlic and place in a cup with the olive oil and lemon juice and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium high heat and cook shallots until they are crispy. Transfer onto a plate and set aside.

In the same pan over medium heat, cook the steaks about 5 minutes on each side.

While steaks are cooking, distribute the salad ingredients into 2 bowls with the lemon, garlic, and olive oil dressing.

When steaks are done remove from pan and place onto a cutting board to rest for a few minutes. Cut up the steaks into strips and place on top of the salad.
