Ingredients for Crab Linguine
2 x 170g Tin white crab meat
5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to season
In a bowl combine the crab meat, with the parsley, lemon zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

When the pasta is about 3 minutes away from being ready, heat the oil in a large pan over a low heat and fry the garlic and chilli together for a minute. Then add the crab mixture to it and heat through, stirring continually.
When the pasta is ready drain and then tip it back into the same pan. Spoon in the crab mixture and mix everything together.
