Well, here it is, the crab pasta that I had planned to make with the balance of the Dungeness crab meat which I had picked up earlier. It’s just a simple and yet delicious Linguine with Crab. I always cook the pasta only when everyone is ready to dine, so that the pasta will not go cold and dry out.
Linguine With Crab
400g Dried Linguine
350 g Dungeness Crab Meat
3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 Red Chilies, chopped
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
Juice of 2 Lemon and more to taste
Fresh chopped Parsley (Optional)
Fresh chopped Fennel Top (Optional)
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In a large saucepan, cook the garlic with olive oil on a low heat until they are light golden in color.
Remove the pan from the heat. Toss in the chilies, crabmeat and season well with salt and pepper.
Cook the linguine according to the packet directions and drain thoroughly. Mix the linguine into the crab mixture. Serve immediately with some chopped parsley or herbs from the fennel top, extra virgin olive oil and lemon wedges on the side.
