Shrimp and Pasta with Garlic Shallots and Fried Radishes

We have always eaten radishes raw until we met a farmer at our local farmers market this summer who suggested we fry them. They are sooo good fried. They taste completely different and make a great side dish!
We tried a new garlic/shallot sauce for this pasta shrimp dish and it turned out really good as well. We had bought an elephant garlic and were using it in everything because, well it's just fun, but also the elephant garlic is a little different than the regular garlic. It has a different, more soft flavor to it. Also, it's fun to cut it up like an onion, since each piece is almost as big as a small onion!
