Chilli Crab Linguine
Chilli Crab Linguine



  • 400g linguine
  • 1 hot red chilli, chopped finely and deseeded
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 whole cooked crab OR about 200g white crab meat and 100g brown crab meat
  • Handful of chopped flat leaf parsley
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • Splash of white wine
  • Boil a large pot of salted water, and add the linguine. You’ll want to boil this for about a minute or two less than instructed on the pack.
  • While the pasta cooks, heat about three tbsp olive oil in a big pan. Gently cook the garlic and chilli, and when they’re sizzling softly add a decent splash of white wine (about 6 tbsp if you want to be precise). Simmer until everything is blended nicely, then turn the heat right down and stir in the brown crab meat to make a thick sauce.
  • Using a pair of kitchen tongs, add the linguine to the pan with the crab, chilli, garlic and wine. It should be al dente and have a decent bit. Once stirred in, add the white crab meat and parsley, and stir well on a low heat. Season well, add a squeeze of lemon juice, and serve.
