You may or may not be aware that I have been trying to train myself to enjoy the great riches of the ocean. I’m not fond of fish or crustaceans and I never have been, (if you can’t tell by the distinct lack of fish recipes on my blog!) but I can’t help feeling that I’m missing out on a great deal of fantastic food! So, as part of my ‘training programme’ I opted to try out this zingy crab linguine recipe from the awesome guys over at Sorted Food.
Here is what you will need to serve two people. (Easily doubled)
- 200g (approx) Dried Linguine
- 1 Red Chilli
- 1 large Clove of Garlic
- Handful of Fresh Parsley
- 6 tbsp Olive Oil
- 3-4 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1 Tin of Crab (170g) *
* It’s better to spend a little extra & use the jumbo crab chunks as opposed to the shredded crab
Crab Linguine Recipe
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil then cook the linguine as per the packet instructions.
Meanwhile… make the dressing.
Finely chop the garlic and the chilli. You can leave the seeds in if you like it a bit fiery, if not – take them out.
Then chop the parsley and add this along with the garlic, chilli, olive oil and lemon juice to a small glass or jug. (Reserve a little parsley for decoration) Season with plenty of salt & pepper and stir to combine.
When the pasta is cooked, drain the water and return it to the pan.
Drain the crab meat and stir this through the hot pasta along with the dressing.
Divide between two warmed plates and sprinkle with the remaining chopped parsley to finish.
And that is literally it! It’s SO quick and easy to make and surprisingly (for me) really very tasty! It has a real ‘zing’ to it along with a little kick from the chilli, just delicious!
