Ginger-Lime Shrimp

Was craving something "exotic" last night and made this concoction. Shrimp with , I guess, Bahama-Thai flavor?

You just need:

Some shrimp (Yep, I don't measure things)
Garlic/Garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Lime (or lemon)
Fresh ginger root
Green onions
Green peppers
Regular onions (I like sweet vidalia)

Start with heating up butter. While that's doing it's thing - dice up green pepers and onions small. Toss them on and let them cook up a bit. Then toss shrimp. Cut lime up in halves, and squeeze a bit, but not too much. Then cut the 1/2 lime into quarters and toss into the mix.
Add your garlic, salt (tiny amount), pepper. Then add a TINY bit of ginger. I pretty much just scrape a bit off the root (remive the skin!)and just toss it in the mix for the smell, mostly.

The green onions go last. Sometimes I'll add some cilantro leaves as well. This dish tastes really fresh and delicious.
