    The two tablespoons of butter that the recipe calls for only add up to 204 calories...3 ounces of shrimp are only 84 calories...those are the two "biggies" in that recipe, so I'm not seeing where the calories are coming from, unless that's with the vermouth added...which I don't like and don't use...

    1 1/2 pound jumbo shrimp, shelled and deveined (a little over 1/3 lb per serving)
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    2 teaspoons minced garlic
    1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    2 teaspoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
    1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest

    And the analysis from Calorie Count (which I think is HIGH in the calories...shrimp is NOT that high in calories:

    Put the shrimp on a large pie pan or plate and pat them completely dry with a paper towel. Arrange the shrimp so they lay flat and are evenly spaced.

    Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Add the butter to the skillet. When the foaming subsides, raise the heat to high, and invert the plate of shrimp over the pan so the shrimp fall into the pan all at once. Cook the shrimp, without moving them, for 1 minute. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Turn the shrimp over and cook for 2 minutes more. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl.

    Return the skillet to the heat and pour in the vermouth and lemon juice. Boil the liquid until slightly thickened, about 30 seconds. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir the zest and parsley into the sauce. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, season with salt and pepper to taste and toss to combine.

    Divide the shrimp among 4 plates or arrange on a platter and serve.
    charlee, you don't get it. we all want someone else to make it. we just want to eat it.

    Amen sister. I could make it, but it tastes better when some one else does it.

    Betelloni [spelling? ] makes a awesome jarred scampi sauce-I am not usually a huge fan of jarred anything but this one was really good, I have even used it over chicken, so quick and easy.
