  1. Mix together lemon juice, onion, olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, ginger, and turmeric in a bowl. Place shrimp into marinade, cover, and refrigerate shrimp and marinade mixture overnight.
  2. Remove shrimp, saving the marinade. Heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat; melt coconut oil in hot wok. Stir-fry shrimp in coconut oil until shrimp are opaque and pink, 5 to 10 minutes. Add reserved marinade and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
