Lemon Pepper Shrimp Scampi

Normally just a pile of shrimp drowned in butter, shrimp scampi gets a kick in the pants from our recipe, both nutritionally and flavorfully. We cook our shrimp in a reasonable amount of butter to get the taste and silky mouthfeel of classic scampi, then we make a garlicky sauce with lemon and pepper for even more flavor. A serving of shrimp atop cooked orzo makes for a complete meal, but the calories per serving are under control at 403.
