Shrimp with Rum and Mint

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 to 2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint (or cilantro)

Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the shrimp, garlic, and jalapenos and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the mint, scallions, rum, limejuice, and salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the shrimp are done, about 1 minute. Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a serving dish. Boil the sauce over high heat until thick and syrupy, 2 to 3 minutes. Correct the seasoning, adding more limejuice or salt. Pour the sauce over the shrimp and serve.
