The jalapenos are a bit spicy but the fennel and mint cool the dish down a bit. Make sure to sop up the cooking juices with a great bread. Serve with or without pasta, either way is delicious.

    Split the shrimp in half lengthwise. In a 12-inch saute` pan heat 1/4 cup olive oil until smoking. Add shrimp, garlic and jalapenos and cook until shrimp has turned bright pink on one side but the garlic is still light brown, 4-5 minutes.

    Add wine and remaining olive oil. Turn shrimp over and cook 2-3 minutes more, until bright pink all over and still flexible.

    Add mint, fennel and marjoram and toss through. Pour into a warm serving bowl and serve.

    We eat this several ways. My favorite is straight from a bowl with a great bread to sop up the cooking juices or served over linguine or capellini.
