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team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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.

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

If you have cucumber, salt and pepper, white/white wine vinegar, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. It is brought to you by Foodista. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 51%. This score is good. Make-Ahead Marinated Cucumber Salad with Radishes, Dill, and Shrimp, Cajun Shrimp & Cucumber Wraps, and Marinated Shrimp with Cucumber Noodles are very similar to this recipe.

Cajun can be paired with Sauvignon Blanc, rosé Wine, and Albarino. These low-tannin, lower alcohol wines will complement the heat in spicy cajun dishes, instead of making your mouth burn more. The Momo Sauvignon Blanc with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 15 dollars per bottle.

Momo Sauvignon Blanc

Displays a complex nose with aromas of tropical fruit, herbaceous notes and a hint of cassis. The natural fermentation adds a rich and textural quality to the palate, with subtle notes of lemon zest and passion fruit. The finish is crisp and dry. Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or enjoy by itself as a refreshing aperitif.

Instructions

Preheat broiler to high. Place shrimp on a small rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp cajun seasoning, lemon juice (or vinegar), 1 T oil (if using) and pinch or two of salt and black pepper. Place in the oven on the upper third rack. Broil for 3-5 minutes until shrimp is completely opaque and pink. Meanwhile, place cucumber slices in a bowl and toss with remaining 1/2 tsp cajun seasoning, 2 T vinegar, 2 T olive oil (if using), and salt and pepper to taste. Divide cucumbers between two bowls, top each with half of the shrimp and a couple spoonfuls of pico de gallo.
