23 Mar

Spaghettini with prawns, crab, cherry tomatoes & basil.

Serves 4

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves , chopped
pinch chilli flakes
200g cherry tomatoes , halved
zest and juice 1 lemon
2 x 170g cans white crab meat, drained or use fresh crab meat
400g raw prawns pealed ad deveined
400g spaghettini
1 tsp capers , drained and rinsed
1 chilli finely chopped ( remove seeds if for less heat )
1 big handful basil leaves , roughly chopped

1 In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and chilli flakes. Cook until just pale golden, then add the prawns and cook until just turning pink, now add tomatoes. Cook 3 mins more on a high heat until the tomatoes start to break down a little. Add the lemon juice and cook for 1-2 mins. Remove from the heat and stir in the crab to warm through – not too much or it will break up.

2 Boilthe pasta in a large pan of salted water following pack instructions then drain. Mix the pasta in the warm pot with the sauce, lemon zest, chopped fresh chilli and capers, and toss the basil through.

Serve in hot dishes and enjoy 😉

    Tried this without the crab (it looked at little suspect at the grocery store) and it was amazing! I will have to make double batch next time so bf doesn’t eat it all. 🙂
