w&h idea
Try this with fresh mussels or clams, cooked in a hot, lidded pan with a splash of water for 2 to 3 minutes until their shells have opened. Discard any broken or unopened ones. Prawns work well too.

  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 200g (7oz) fresh white and brown crab meat (available in most supermarkets)
  • juice 1 lemon
  • 2 red chillies, very finely chopped
  • large handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • large handful of parsley, leaves roughly chopped

Method

  • Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions. When done, drain it and coat in half the olive oil.
