In an extremely hot pan, salt and sear the shrimp. Flip them over and add marinade, white wine and lemon juice. Reduce sauce and swirl in soft butter.

Sarasota’s Bijou Cafe has been a personal favorite for years and is one of 100 great restaurants nationwide featured with a recipe in my first book, “The Restaurant Diet, How to Eat Out Every Night and Still Lose Weight.”
