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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

This gluten free, dairy free, paleolithic, and primal recipe has 206 calories, 11g of protein, and 15g of fat per serving. 1 person has made this recipe and would make it again. It is brought to you by Pink When. It is a rather cheap recipe for fans of Mediterranean food. If you have shrimp, zucchini, garlic powder, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. Taking all factors into account, this recipe earns a spoonacular score of 0%, which is very bad (but still fixable). Shrimp Scampi Zoodles, Shrimp Scampi Zoodles for Two, and Shrimp 2 Ways: Soy Sauce-Grilled Shrimp with Spinach Salad and New-Style Scampi are very similar to this recipe.

Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc 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 NEXT Pinot Gris with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 18 dollars per bottle.

NEXT Pinot Gris

Apricot, Pear, Fig This wine has a brilliant pale straw color with ripe pear and pineapple aromas with subtle floral notes in the nose. The palate provides a balance of ripe fruit and fresh acidity with flavors of apricot, fig, and lime zest. The finish is long and clean.

Tips

Cooking Tips

  • An average lemon yields about one tablespoon of lemon zest. If you're using a bunch of lemons to make lemonade or something, zest them first and freeze the zest for later.

  • If you find that you're always missing lemon zest, purchase lemon extract and substitute a 1/2 teaspoon extract for every tablespoon zest.

  • Rumor has it you can freeze whole lemons and grate them while still frozen whenever you want to pump up the lemon flavor in a dish. Next time you have some lemons not getting used, give it a try (and let us know how it goes).

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

Green Tips

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic lemons if you're using them for zest.
