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.

Shrimp works really well with Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. These crisp white wines work well with shrimp prepared in a variety of ways, whether grilled, fried, or in garlic sauce. The Ruffino Il Ducale Pinot Grigio with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.

Ruffino Il Ducale Pinot Grigio

Straw yellow with a hint of gold. Fresh and fragrant with bright aromas of pineapple, white peach, and tropical fruit accompanied by delicate white flowers and sage, followed by flavors of apple and pear. The acidity is firm but balanced, working with the ripe fruit taste profile to confer freshness and a mineral touch to the wine.Pairs well with fresh seafood salsa, linguine, spinach gnocchi, tomato bruschetta, Parmigiano Reggiano, or Pecorino Romano.

Instructions

Using a mortar and pestle, pound garlic, ginger and salt into a fine paste. If you dont have a mortar and pestle, you can finely chopped them instead. In a pot, heat up 2 tbsps of oil with onion, curry leaves and fennel seeds on a moderate heat. Saute until the onion becomes golden brown. Add ginger-garlic paste, garam masala and turmeric powder. Saute until aromatic. Then add 1/3 cup of water and allow the pot mixture to bubble on low heat until the oil begins to separate. Toss in the prawns and quickly, coat them with the spices and saute on low heat for 1 minute. Add more water if the bottom starts to stick. Add coconut milk and let it simmer until boiling point. If you prefer more gravy, you can add more water at this stage. Season with salt and sugar to taste. Garnish with chopped chilli or coriander. Serve while its hot!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Cooking Tips

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.
