Fast and Easy Crab Pasta Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
    Sea salt
    1 clove of garlic
    1/2 red chile, deseeded and finely chopped
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    Juice and zest of 1 lemon
    3/4 cup cooked fresh crab meat
    6 ounces whole wheat or spelt linguine
    Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Directions

  1. Cut the tomatoes and sprinkle them with a little sea salt.
  2. In a mortar and pestle, crush the garlic and chile into a red pulp. (If necessary, add a little sea salt to help grind the two together.)
  3. Mix in the olive oil, lemon juice, and zest. Add the crab to the mix if your mortar and pestle is big enough; if not, transfer everything to a slightly bigger bowl.
  4. Cook the pasta until it's al dente; drain, then pour the crab mixture and tomatoes over and sprinkle with parsley as desired.
