I originally published this crab linguine recipe in 2015 (where does the time fly?) and it’s high time I gave it an update.

It is one of my top five speedy weeknight meals – so quick, simple and absolutely delicious! If you like crab recipes, make sure to bookmark this one.

When I first posted this recipe I used frozen whole crab claws. These days I use fresh or canned crab meat – much less messy to eat!

The only downside is that crab is quite expensive these days so this dish has become a bit of a treat.

CRAB LINGUINE INGREDIENTS

You will need a large pan that can contain the sauce and pasta for this recipe. A chef’s pan or wok would work.

  • Dried linguine or other pasta of your choice
  • Butter and olive oil
  • Shallots and garlic
  • Salt and pinch of sugar
  • Fresh tomatoes, seeds removed
  • Crab meat – I used both brown and white crab meat in this recipe. The brown crab meat was fresh and the white lump crab was canned. Use whatever you can find, avoiding crab sticks (imitation crab)
  • Wine or vermouth
  • Lemon Juice
  • Grated parmesan
  • Parsley and chilli flakes to serve

Stir the pasta into the sauce and add the white crab meat and parmesan. Add a splash of the reserved pasta water to loosen the sauce. Don’t add it all at once, just stir enough in so that the pasta is coated in the sauce.
