Linguine With Crab

Fast and Easy Dinner: Crab, Lemon, and Chile Linguine

Love dungeness crab, but don't want to spend a pretty penny on it? You can stretch your dollar by incorporating its tender meat in a toothsome pasta. This rustic meal, which comes from the cookbook of culinary show host and former model Sophie Dahl, combines crab with whole wheat linguine, cherry tomatoes, and chile pepper. I love how al dente linguine and a paste of garlic, chiles, and lemon zest highlight the crab's succulence and sweet flavor. Keep reading for the recipe.

Linguine With Tomatoes, Lemon, Chile and Crab

Fast and Easy Crab Pasta Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  2. Sea salt
  3. 1 clove of garlic
  4. 1/2 red chile, deseeded and finely chopped
  5. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  6. Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  7. 3/4 cup cooked fresh crab meat
  8. 6 ounces whole wheat or spelt linguine
  9. 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.
