Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

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behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

Shrimp works really well with White Wine, Alcoholic Drink, and Ingredient. These crisp white wines work well with shrimp prepared in a variety of ways, whether grilled, fried, or in garlic sauce. The Fiesta Winery Texas Summer Night with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 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).
