In a frying pan melt butter and cook and stir shallots and peas until soft. Be careful not to brown them. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Stir in mint.
Cut ciabatta slices in half and sprinkle with olive oil. Halve garlic cloves and rub over each slice of ciabatta.
Grill (or toast) the ciabatta slices until crisp and golden brown. Once golden brown, remove from the heat and spread pea puree on each slice. Serve immediately.
