    1 lb large shrimp, shelled and cleaned

    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.
