    OK that's just cruel - of course we all want a bite!

    All I have is leftover pizza for lunch.

    I'm with Quilter 7x. That's cruel! I just made some turkey chili, which I like just fine - and now I'm feeling all deprived!

    That's just wrong!

    I've eaten the last 3 meals out at 3 different restaurants and they were all super disappointing....Can I come to YOUR restaurant and you can serve me that????

    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:

    Nutrition Facts
    Serving Size 733 g

    Amount Per Serving
    Calories 703Calories from Fat 208
    % Daily Value*
    Total Fat 23.1g36%

    Vitamin A 19% Vitamin C 21%
    Calcium 75% Iron 26%

    Nutrition Grade D+
    * Based on a 2000 calorie diet

    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, the calories and fat are from the butter, not the shrimp. Of course, the butter is what makes it shrimp scampi. Somehow, I don't think the calorie and fat counts are the point here...

    Marsye, you @%$#*, you know that looked spectacular! I agree with whoever says it looks better than what the restaurants serve. It would take me 3 - 4 days to drive down to Arkansas, so I wouldn't be in time for Sunday dinner. Otherwise, I'd be there!
