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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Shrimp works really well with Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Grigio. These crisp white wines work well with shrimp prepared in a variety of ways, whether grilled, fried, or in garlic sauce. The John Anthony Vineyards Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 22 dollars per bottle.

John Anthony Vineyards Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

The 2013 John Anthony Sauvignon Blanc is sourced only from vineyards I planted and farm here in the Napa Valley. Fermented primarily in stainless steel and likely one of the last Sauvignon Blancs harvested in the Napa Valley the wine exhibits the classic ripe melon and tropical flavors you have come to love.

Instructions

  1. Grab up your frying pan and cook up the three strips of bacon. When they're cooked up, pull them out, chop them up, and drain the bacon fat, reserving about a tablespoon. Turn your heat up to medium and add in your asparagus, onion, and garlic. Cook it up for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add in the corn and tomatoes.
  3. Mix it together, give it a minute or two to warm up and then add in the broth, the chopped bacon and your spices; the old bay, cajun, lemon pepper, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Let the whole kit and kaboodle heat up for a good five minutes and then add in your cream.
  5. And last but most definitely not least, grab up your shrimp and pop them into the pan.
  6. Give the whole pan a swirl or two and allow the soup a couple minutes to heat back up.
  7. Serve with green onions sprinkled over the top.
