Crab Pasta

I get tubs of crab meat from a wee local fish van.  It is very strong and I know that may not be to everyone's taste but if you are a fan of crab meat, this recipe is a great way to enjoy it.  Feel free to adjust the quantity of chilli based on how fiery you like it.

Zest of 1 lemon
2 chopped spring onions
1 crushed clove of garlic
Half a red chilli, chopped finely
Splash of olive oil
100 grams of white crab meat
150 grams of mange tout
150 grams of pasta
salt and pepper
lemon juice

Put the zest, onions, garlic and chilli into a frying pan with a splash of olive oil.

Heat gently for a few minutes then add the crab meat, mix well and cook for a few more minutes.

Meanwhile cook the pasta in salted boiling water, adding the mange tout for the last couple of minutes.

Mix the crab mix with the drained pasta and mange tout and serve squeezed with lemon juice and seasoning to taste.
