For a romantic dinner, try this superb shrimp, sauteed in a buttery, garlic and lemon wine sauce. It doesn’t get easier to prepare yet it taste so indulgent. Instead of having to prep the raw shrimp, by deveining and such, I like to use cooked shrimp. It’s so much easier and cooks in minutes! The skinny for each generous serving is 457 calories and 14 grams of fat compared to it’s full fat version at 921 calories and 48g fat! So elegant looking, gourmet and so easy so you’ll have more time for romance. Ahhh…

    Prep Tip
    I used cooked jumbo shrimp for the time savings. If you prefer to use raw, saute in a little reduced-fat butter until pink. Set aside while cooking the wine sauce.
