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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Grigio are great choices for Shrimp. These crisp white wines work well with shrimp prepared in a variety of ways, whether grilled, fried, or in garlic sauce. The Silverado Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc ( half-bottle) with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.

Silverado Miller Ranch Sauvignon Blanc ( half-bottle)

These Sauvignon Blanc vines are rooted in a special site between Hopper Creek and the Napa River. Blessed with deep soil, Miller Ranch is also in a climate sweet spot: cool enough in the morning to give the wine refreshing aromas of grapefruit, lime and tangerine; warm enough in the afternoon to give the wine a smooth silky texture and a juicy finish.
