Chill Crab Linguine

With all that relaxing on the beach soaking up the glorious sun rays (don't forget the sunscreen) it can be a hungry job lounging around. 

But on a summers day, we are going to need a tasty dish which packs a punch at the same time as tickling our taste buds, all whilst dreaming and wishing we were right back by the sea and what better dish to eat on a summers day than a chilli crab linguine and I promise you, after just one bite, you will be wanting to it this dish all summer long. 

This is the perfect meal be it for lunch or dinner to enjoy with family and friends with a nice ice cold bottle of plonk (you know me Prosecco or Sancerre) and an elderflower cordial for the kiddies (Leanora loves the stuff, thinking of making my own, is it hard, or do you have any good family recipes?).

Now I must say, I did make this with both white and dark crab meat as I wanted to really taste the salty sea (makes sense in my mind) but you can opt just for the white glorious fatty flesh of crab if you wish.

Ingredients (serves 4)
400g Linguine
A handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped
300g Fresh white crab meat 
4 Stems of parsley finely chopped
1 Green and red chilli chopped
Half a lemon
50ml of olive oil
1 Garlic clove finely chopped

1. Cook linguine in boiling water (you can add salt, but I don't) for 8-9 minutes.

2. Whilst linguine is cooking away nicely, in a pan, through in your olive oil, crab, chilli (as much as you like), tomatoes, and garlic and lemon juice and cook over a medium heat until all warmed through. 

3. drain pasta, but save a little of the water for your sauce and pop back into your pan, pour in your warmed through ingredients and gently toss together.

4. serve amongst 4 dishes and sprinkle over your chopped parsley and serve.

Do you have a tasty summery dish that you and your friends and family like to enjoy?
