Garlic Lemon Shrimp

One thing I always have in my freezer is frozen cooked shrimp.  
It's quick to thaw and can be used for lots of healthy recipes.  
Last night, the day got away from me. 
It was 5:00 by the time I looked at the clock and I didn't have anything out for dinner. 
I had already played the breakfast for dinner card this week,  I needed something different.  
So, I pulled out my shrimp and by the time it was thawed I had found a recipe. 
Dinner was ready by the time hubs was home. 
I liked it, he liked it.
