Salt the shrimp well and set aside for 10 minutes.
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic. Turn the heat down to medium and saute the garlic for 1-3 minutes -- don't let it burn.
Add all the ground spices and stir well to combine. Cook this, stirring often, for 2 minutes.

Turn off the heat, add the lemon juice and toss to combine. Serve at once.
