Spaghetti With Dungeness Crab


Today, I have a fantastic Spaghetti With Dungeness Crab recipe for you. The pasta is tossed into a delicious light tomato-based crab meat sauce. The delicate flavors of the fresh crab meat is retained with only minimal cooking. I think this pasta dish will be an outstanding weeknight dinner treat!

Spaghetti With Dungeness Crab

Ingredients

3 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 Cloves Garlic, peeled and sliced
1 tsp Chili Flakes
1 Can (28 fl oz/796 ml) Diced Tomatoes, drained and reserved ½ Cup of liquid
24 Slow Roasted or Fresh Cherry Tomatoes, halved
About 1 lb of Fresh Dungeness Crab Meat (from 1 large crab/2.5 lbs)
2 Sprigs of Fresh Basil Leaves, chopped
3 Sprigs of Italian Flat-Leaves Parsley, chopped
½ Cup White Wine
Lemon Juice
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
400 g Dried Spaghetti

Method

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and chili flakes and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden. Add the diced tomatoes, reserved liquid, wine and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low while you cook your pasta in a large pan of salted boiling water according to the packet instructions. Allow the tomato mixture to simmer for about 6 to 8 minutes. Then add the tomatoes, crab meat, basil and parsley, and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Season the mixture with lemon juice, sea salt and pepper.

When the pasta has cooked al dente, drain it in a colander, and toss it in the pan with the crab meat sauce. Serves immediately.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
