Shrimp Scampi

Italian-American Shrimp Scampi Supreme!

Share

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.

Hutspot can be made and served with or without meat, but it most often does get served with either beef or pork. This Dutch Hutspot with Pork Chops recipe is a classic rendition of the traditional Dutch cuisine dish. Hutspot is basically a simple dish. Just boiled and mashed together potatoes, carrots and onions. Then you serve it, in this case, with some fried pork chops with gravy as a perfect compliment.

Crispy Szechuan Orange Beef

Share

If you are up for a super hot & spicy Chinese meal, then Crispy Szechuan Orange Beef is for you. You can, of course, control the level of hot & spicy by the amount of hot chili peppers the recipe calls for. Also, and I am often amazed how few people know this, the seeds of a chili pepper is where the highest level of capsaicin is found. Capsaicin is the colorless and odorless chemical that is what’s hot about hot peppers. So enjoy your Szechuan Crispy Orange Beef at whatever level of hot & spicy suits your fancy. Just don’t go too mild, or it’s no longer a legitimate Szechuan dish.
