    Shrimp in Rum and Mint Sauce

    1 Tbs butter
    2 cloves of garlic, minced
    1 or 2 jalapenos, seeded and sliced (optional and to taste)
    1 lb large shrimp, shelled and cleaned
    1 bunch green onions
    handful of mint
    salt and pepper to taste
    3 limes, juiced
    1/4 cup of rum

    In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and saute garlic, jalapenos, and shrimp until the shrimp are opaque (2 to 3 minutes). Add green onions, mint, salt and pepper, lime juice, and rum. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Remove shrimp and other solids into serving bowl. Reduce the liquid over high heat until it is a thick syrup and then pour over shrimp.
