Immensely popular in Belize is this Curried Coconut Chicken dish. It can be served by itself as a mid-day lunch meal, or as one of the entrees in a larger, supper repast. The subtle blending of curry, spices, and coconut milk is absolutely marvelous. Also, the dash of hot chili pepper sauce adds just the right “kick” to this delightful dish.

Shrimp Scampi

Italian-American Shrimp Scampi Supreme!

Share
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Shrimp Scampi Supreme is a classic example of Italian immigrant influence on American cuisine. “Scampi” are actually lobster-like crustaceans, but much smaller – about the size of a jumbo prawn (shrimp). They have pale pink shells, also like the larger lobsters. When Italian cooks immigrated to America, true scampi were hard to come by. So, they started using jumbo prawns with exceptionally satisfying results. They continued to call the dish “scampi”, but added “shrimp” to the name. Hence, “Shrimp Scampi” came into existence, a truly original American dish. There are many versions of it, but this one is my favorite, thus the name: Shrimp Scampi Supreme!

One of the more traditional methods of preparing scampi in Italy is to sauté them in white wine, olive oil, chopped onion and minced garlic. This American Shrimp Scampi Supreme recipe follows that much of the tradition, but adds a couple herbs: parsley and tarragon.

Korean Pa Jun Pancakes Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Korean Pa Jun (egg pancakes) is an easy to prepare recipe. I have fond memories of these from my days as a Zen student living in a temple with a Korean Zen Master, and the daily fare was largely Korean. It makes a great snack, or an appetizer, or a side dish to an Asian meal.

Just see how yummy this looks!
Korean Pa Jun

Korean Pa Jun can be tweaked to your own tastes; almost anything goes as long as the basic eggs, flour and scallions are included. I like to spice them up with some hot peppers, and add some sweet bell peppers as well. You can also experiment with the ratio of eggs to flour you desire, achieving anywhere from a heavy, thick texture to light and fluffy.

Strange Grilled Meats: Kangaroo Meat

Kangaroo Meat

I was searching for some unique, even “strange” ethnic recipes to share here during the recent summer grilling months. A Google search for “Strange Grilled Meats” led me to a recipe that I modified just a tad, but still using the same meats:

Ostrich, Emu, and/or Kangaroo steaks.

Now I know, to Australians, these are probably not considered strange grilled meats, not even in the least. But to us living here in North America, yes … plopping steaks from those animals on the barbie certainly falls under the category of-

Strange Grilled Meats!

I haven’t tried the ostrich or emu yet, but I did order some kangaroo steaks. Actually, I purchased some boneless Kangaroo loin meat, and sliced several thick steaks off of it.

I marinated them according to the recipe below, grilled them up medium rare, and let me tell you … delicious!

So good in fact, I decided I’m going to try out the same marinade/recipe with ostrich and emu, too. But for right now, on this post, the following is how I prepared my Kangaroo steaks.

Okay, you say, enough chit chat … how about getting into the recipe, Old Silly?

And fine, I say, that is exactly what I’m about to do, next up on this Strange Grilled Meats post …
