But you want the cumin and ginger to really stand out – this savory combination is what gives Egyptian Spicy Fried Prawns and Scallops its distinctive flavor.

Polish Kielbasa is now a beloved sausage in many countries throughout Europe and the Americas. In the States we grille it, use it in stews, all kinds of ways. Still, to get the real traditional effect of eating Polish kielbasa, you have to at least experience once how it tastes alongside sauerkraut and potatoes, with onions and garlic and seasonings. Also, serve it with the Hot Sweet Honey Mustard Sauce for a condiment … Absolutely Wonderful!

When I first heard my Grandma tell me (I had just bought a new set of cookware) that, “You should clean your cast iron skillets with salt,” I thought she was joking. She wasn’t, and proceeded to show me by example with one of her own old skillets she had cooked with last night and was still on the stovetop.

Within two minutes, and with incredible ease, she turned a skillet that looked like this …

This Hearty Beef Stew Wilsonian recipe is a new addition to our All American Soups and Sandwiches page. It is a very unique take on an age-old stew, that will surely have you wondering how in the world did this get so good!

Hearty Beef Stew Wilsonian

There are lots of beef stews, but until you have tried this Hearty Beef Stew Wilsonian, you have not yet known how wonderful a beef stew can be. This is my own special recipe. Hearty Beef Stew Wilsonian is an outgrowth of my interaction with my Ghanaian wife’s cooking. She is, in her own right, an amazing cook. She has introduced me to spices and food preparations that I had not yet known. Combined with my American ideas about how to cook a stew with her Ghanaian concepts, this Wilson Hearty Beef Stew came to be. Enjoy!

German Gurkensalat

Gurkensalat German Cucumber Salad

Gurkensalat is what we in America know as Cucumber Salad. It is originally from Germany, and we owe it to German immigrants who, long ago, brought this, one of their favorite dishes, with them. It soon became popular in the States, especially in the south.

Gurkensalat

There are two classic versions of Gerkensalat, One has a creamy sauce, made with sour cream in it, and the other is a lighter version. This recipe is the lighter version, although I do include the optional garnishes of a dollop of sour cream and a cherry tomato.

While there are of course many slight variations on the traditional recipe, this one is my personal favorite. If you are preparing an authentic German meal of Weiner Schnitzel, this makes for a perfect and traditional side dish.

West Coast American Tetrazzini with Chicken or Turkey

West Coast American Tetrazzini is a handy recipe to keep on hand for when you have leftover chicken or turkey. I suppose you could use any poultry, really, duck, goose, even wild game poultry. However, usually tetrazzini is made with chicken or turkey meat.

West Coast American Tetrazzini originated in San Francisco, just after the turn of the 20th century, created by Ernest Arbogast, the chef at the Palace Hotel. It is supposedly named after Luisa Tetrazzini, an Italian opera star who was a longstanding resident at the Palace.

There are lots of variations on the dish, but this one is quite mainstream. I put peas in my tetrazzini, some do not, preferring peas as a side dish. I also prefer using chicken over turkey – I think chicken meat is tastier.

Shrimp Scampi

Italian-American Shrimp Scampi Supreme!

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.
