A simple pasta dish filled with crab in a delicious creamy sauce

The method

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil with 1 tablespoon of salt, add the linguine and bring back to the boil, ensuring you stir the pasta every couple of minutes to stop it sticking together.
  2. Meanwhile, melt half of the butter in a large pan and add the chillies followed by the white crab meat and cream. Shake to incorporate and then remove from the heat.
  3. Once the linguine is cooked, drain (but reserve a cup of the cooking water). Stir the linguine into the crab and chilli mix, then return to a high heat.
  4. Stir well to combine, then add the brown crab meat, remaining butter and the chopped tarragon. Toss and stir well to combine, adding a dash or 2 of the linguine cooking water to create a sauce to coat the pasta.
  5. Finish with some lemon juice, salt and pepper, plus more chilli if desired. Garnish with some shredded tarragon and serve in a deep warm pasta bowl.
