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. You could try Hills Vineyard Pinot Grigio. Reviewers quite like it with a 5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 13 dollars per bottle.

Instructions

  1. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a bowl, taste it to check if you like the balance of flavour and adjust if you wish. Set this aside.
  2. Heat the oil on a very high heat in a wok. Get the oil as hot as you can, just below smoking point. Check the heat by dropping a piece of spring onion (scallion) and if it sizzles immediately, the oil is hot enough.
  3. Add the chili, garlic and ginger, stir and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the spring onions (scallions) and cook for a further minute.
  4. Add the shrimp (prawns) cook for about 2 minutes or until they turn pink.
  5. Add the sauce, keeping the heat high so that as soon as it hits your pan or wok, it sizzles and reduces.
  6. When the sauce has thickened a little, add the pak choi, mix through and cover it, cooking only for a minute.
  7. Serve with simply boiled white rice and sprinkle with some fresh coriander (cilantro).

Tips

Health Tips

  • Ketchup can pack in a surprising amount of sugar, so read the nutrition facts label and find a brand that doesn't have too much. Of course, you can also make your own ketchup so you can control how much sugar goes in.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • 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).

  • Here is an easy health swap: substitute brown rice for white rice. Brown rice is a whole grain, while white rice is brown rice stripped of some of its parts and much of its fiber and other nutrients. It is important to note, however, that all rice types raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation. In fact, if it seems like it would work in the recipe, the best option would probably be so-called cauliflower rice.

Price Tips

  • Making your own ketchup from scratch won't actually save you money and will definitely cost you more time. Personally, we will be sticking with store bought, but watching our serving sizes to avoid too much sugar.

Cooking Tips

  • 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.

  • 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.

Green Tips

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
