Asparagus and crab linguine with chilli

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes | Serves: 2


  • 200g spaghetti or linguine
  • 100g asparagus tips
  • 150g white crab meat
  • 1 knob salted butter
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 fresh chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsps chives, finely chopped
  • Lemon zest and juice


1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to pack instructions.

2. Meanwhile, heat the butter and oil in a frying pan big enough to hold the pasta. Add the chilli and garlic, then the asparagus, and cook for 3 minutes or until the asparagus starts to soften. Add the crab meat to heat through and remove from the hob.

3. When the pasta is ready, drain (reserving a little cooking water) and add to the asparagus pan. Place back on the heat, add the chives, lemon zest and juice and toss well, adding a little of the pasta water if needed. Season and serve with an extra glug of oil.
