This recipe is surprisingly good. The mint seems an odd herb to accompany seafood and garlic but it worked really well.

Use the small peeled Brown shrimp that are more often sold by specialist suppliers, sea-front stalls and fishmongers than they are in supermarkets. Well worth hunting out.

Home made pasta is the best to go with this dish. Do try it, you don't even need a pasta machine. Just roll it our flat and cut into rough strips with a knife.
