Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc are my top picks for Shrimp. These crisp white wines work well with shrimp prepared in a variety of ways, whether grilled, fried, or in garlic sauce. The Maddalena Pinot Grigio with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 13 dollars per bottle.

Maddalena Pinot Grigio

Our Pinot Grigio is crafted in an Italian style; it is cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the natural fruit characters of the grape. A small portion is fermented in neutral oak barrels with lees stirring to add richness and body. New oak is not utilized. The goal is to fully express the individual flavors or terroir of each parcel of land. Maddalena Vineyard Pinot Grigio reveals aromas of citrus with hints of wildflowers. The mouth is filled with ripe fruit flavors, including melon and green apples. Bright acidity and mineral notes frame this structured and balanced wine.

Instructions

  1. Prepare the beer-batter base at least 2 hours in advance. Before using fold in the egg white.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer, wok or skillet to a temperature of about 350-360 degrees. Add shrimp the batter. Lift one shrimp at a time from the batter using the tines of a two pronged fork, and quickly add each shrimp to the oil. The shrimp will rise to the surface. Do not over crowd. As you fry, take care to remove and discard browned bits and pieces of batter that may accumulate from the drippings. Let one batch cook, stirring 2 or 3 minutes or until golden brown and crisp all over. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot with tartar sauce for dripping. Yields 52-56 shrimp.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If you are cooking with beer, be aware that the amount of alcohol that evaporates could be much less than you think. In fact, researchers found that anywhere between 4 and 49 percent of the alcohol in a dish might remain depending on the cooking method, length of cooking, etc. Beer has less alcohol than wine or liquor, but it is still good to know if you are watching your intake.

  • When cooking with beer, some believe the classic adage for cooking with wine still applies?don't cook with a wine (or beer) you wouldn't drink. This doesn't mean you should use an expensive brew to spike your chili. Just make sure your cooking beer, whatever the cost, is a good quality beer that will add to the flavor of your dish, not take away from it.

Green Tips

  • According to the Non-GMO Project, about 90% of the canola oil in the United States is made from genetically modified rapeseed, so if this issue is important to you be sure to buy certified organic or certified GMO-free canola oil!
