Dice the shallots and place in a pan with the butter; slowly cook until the shallots are tender but not colored. Cook the peas until tender, and then add to the shallots and butter. Mash or blend until the peas form a rough puree. Just before serving add the chopped mint and add salt and pepper to taste.
