Tasty Tuesdays- Shrimp Scampi

My husband loves shrimp. He and Lu's husband from Just Lu, will sit and eat them like popcorn. This was my attempt to get them to put the bag down and let me cook them. This is now one of my husband's favorite recipes.

1-1.5 lbs of shrimp. I put the frozen stuff because the thought of shelling a shrimp makes me want to cry. I may or may not be kidding.
2 T. olive oil - really use olive oil. It makes this recipe have a smoother taste
2 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. salt
2 green onions thinly sliced. I use scissors to cut mine. Don't tell on me to the culinary masters.
2 cloves of garlic finely pressed
grated Parmesan cheese

Heat the oil in a skillet. Cook all the ingredients except Parmesan cheese in the skillet for about 3 minutes. Until everything is heated through. If you buy the cooked shrimp,  you are just warming up. If you buy uncooked you need to cook until the shrimp are pink and firm. Sprinkle with cheese and remove from heat.
