Heat a large sauté pan over high heat for 1 minute. Season the shrimp with 1/2 tsp. salt. Pour 2 Tbs. of the oil into the pan and then add the shrimp, garlic, chiles, and ginger. Sauté, tossing frequently, until the shrimp brown and are no longer translucent, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add another 2 Tbs. oil, the scallions, and 1/4 tsp. salt to the pan. Sauté the scallions until they wilt and begin to brown, about 2 minutes. Return the shrimp to the pan and toss well for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro, lemon juice, and the remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Taste and add more salt and lemon juice, if needed. Serve immediately.
Serve over steamed jasmine rice.
