Crab Chilli Pasta Recipe

As much as I can, I like to shop local. Working for a family run business myself I know how important it is to support the local economy. 

I was challenged by Leisure Range Cookers to come up with a recipe for a dinner party using local ingredients. The crab came from Latimer's seafood deli in Whitburn, the vegetables from the local grocer in Durham, the basil from my Mam's plant. The only thing's local I couldn't get were the pasta and the garlic bread. 

This recipe will feed 4 to 5 people, depending on how hungry you are. 


What you need to make my Crab chilli pasta:

350 grams of White Crab meat 

1 Lemon 

2 Chillies (If you like spice add another one!) 

3 Cloves of garlic 

20ish Vine Cherry Tomatoes 

Handful of Basil 

500 grams Fresh Tagliatelle  

A splash Olive Oil 



First step is get your water on the boil for your pasta as it may take a while. 

Half your tomatoes, chop up your chilli (I removed the seeds) and cut up the garlic. 



Pour some olive oil into a frying pan and fry off the tomatoes, garlic and chilli.  


Once fried off set to one side and read the packet of the pasta for cooking instructions and get that on the go. 



Once your pasta is cooked, put your frying pan with your tomatoes, chilli and garlic in back on the heat and add your crab. 

You just want to heat the crab up which only takes a few minutes. 



Then add the tomatoes and crab to the pasta. 



Garnish the pasta with the basil and the lemon.



We also had a side of garlic bread as it is possibly my favourite side to have with pasta. 



Squeeze a wedge of lemon over your pasta and dig in. 




Super easy recipe to make and absolutely delicious. Don't forget if you make this recipe tag any pictures on instagram with @katiejaneonline. I love seeing your pictures.
