Which has more calories, sautéing or drizzling?

From: 
Debra
Question: 

If I sauté shrimp in 2 tbsp in oil does the caloric or fat levels rise as opposed to steaming the shrimp and adding the 2 tbsp of oil on them afterwards?? I would think that whether you use it during or after, the calorie/fat content would remain the same. My colleague believes that by 'frying' in the 2 tbsp of oil will make it 'fatty'

Answer: 

You are right, its the total amount of fat consumed regardless of whether it was heated up or drizzled on top
