Heat a large cast-iron or heavy-duty pan on medium-high, and melt 1 tbsp butter. Add half of the shrimp and sauté 3–4 min., flipping halfway, until shrimp are fully cooked. Transfer shrimp to a large platter. Repeat with remaining 1 tbsp butter and shrimp.
Squeeze a lemon half over shrimp on platter. Garnish with the green onions and remaining lemon wedges. Serve with the baguette.
