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 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.
