Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
  • 1 red onion, very finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 500g linguine
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped, plus extra to serve
  • 200ml white wine
  • 200g white crabmeat (see our how-to video below)
  • Zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 25g fresh coriander, finely chopped

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-low heat, then fry the onion and garlic, stirring now and then, for 6-8 minutes until soft.
  2. Meanwhile cook the linguine for 8-9 minutes until al dente, then drain. Drizzle a little olive oil through the pasta to stop it sticking.
  3. Add the chilli and wine to the onions, then turn up the heat and bubble for 5-7 minutes until syrupy.
  4. Stir the crab into the onion and wine mixture, add the linguine and toss to combine. Stir through the lemon zest, juice and the coriander, season well, then serve sprinkled with the extra chilli and olive oil.
