Linguine With Crab


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.

Remove the pan from the heat. Toss in the chilies, crabmeat and season well with salt and pepper.

  7. Beautiful and delicious! I tried it myself, and the only thing I'd love to know is: where did you get such beautiful crab meat? Short of steaming fresh crab, the canned stuff I found at Whole Foods tasted fine, but didn't look nearly as nice as yours.

  8. @John: Glad you like the recipe. I bought the crab meat from Lobster Man at Granville Island. Thanks for the feedback.
