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

This is a variation of Brown shrimp, peas and pasta that I made when I could not manage to buy brown shrimp in the UK.

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.
