Southern Soul Deep Fried Alligator is about as American “Soul Food” as you can get. If you’re too squeamish about the idea of eating alligator meat, you can substitute pork or chicken. But for the real ethnic experience, hey – turn the tables on those man-eating amphibians and serve some up on the table.

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.

Christmas in America is one of the most festive days in the land, and this Classic Christmas Turkey recipe is a traditional favorite. Be sure and get a fresh turkey. Plan ahead, go to your favorite butcher or meat market, and order in advance. Frozen turkeys cannot stand up to the flavor of a freshly butchered and dressed turkey.

Stuffed Steamed Bell Peppers Supreme is one of my own recipes. There are many stuffed bell pepper recipes in American cuisine, of course. Usually the peppers are baked. I find, however, that steamed stuffed bell peppers produces a texture in the bell peppers’ meat that is more desirable – still a little firm and chewy, and sweeter than when baked.
Stuffed Steamed Bell Peppers makes for a whole, balanced meal, as you will see in the ingredients. Still, they can just as well be served as one course in a multi-course meal. They go great with chicken dishes, fried rice, salads and soups or stews as well.
I prefer using red bell peppers, as they are, to me, the most colorful and attractive in the presentation. They are also the sweetest of the sweet bell peppers.
You can use green, yellow, or orange bell peppers also. Just keep in mind that the amount of sweetness in a bell pepper graduates upward in order of its color: Green is the least sweet, and the level of sugars in the pepper’s flesh increases in order through yellow, then orange, and then red. So choose your peppers accordingly. Stuffed Steamed Bell Peppers will taste great whatever color your peppers are.
NOTE: When selecting the peppers you want to cook, inspect the bottoms. You want peppers that have level bottoms, with the nodes in proportion to each other so that the pepper will stand upright and not tilt over during the steaming. You can use peppers that are just a little uneven on the bottoms, but if so, carefully slice away the longer node bottom to make it level with the others. Do not cut through the flesh enough to create a hole into the interior cavity, though.
