  1. How to make it Add garlic and butter to large skillet or saute pan(I use cast iron) over medium heat until just melted. Combine all dry spices in small bowl and set aside. Add shrimp to melted butter/garlic and toss quickly to coat. Immediately drizzle with lime juice and toss again. Add dry spices and toss, again. You should be about halfway through cooking, already, by now, so just continue to cook and toss until all shrimp are pink on both sides and just starting to curl. Add cilantro and green onion(and zest, if you are using) and toss once more. Serve immediately.
