Ingredients

  • 320g dried linguine
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for serving)
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • half a red chilli, sliced, seeds removed
  • 3 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • salt
  • 4 blue swimmer crabs, cooked for 8-10 minutes in boiling salted water, meat extracted, or 250g picked crab meat
  • freshly ground pepper

Method

Cook the pasta in a large pot of generously salted water while you prepare the crab.

In a frying pan, gently heat the oil and add the garlic and chilli. Cook until the garlic is pale gold then add the parsley and salt to taste. Stir for half a minute then add the crab meat and juice, if any.

Remove from heat, add the cooked drained pasta and stir to coat. Add a good drizzle of oil and cracked pepper. Serve immediately.
