Fresh Spaghetti with South Devon Crab, Chilli and Parsley

Pasta & seafood is an absolute favourite of mine and using the local South Devon crab you can’t go wrong, it’s a crowd pleaser this one and good any time of the year.


400g spaghetti
1tbsp good olive oil
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped
150g fresh brown South Devon crab meat
50g fresh white South Devon crab meat
Juice of ½ lemon
Handful of flat leaf parsley
Drizzle of olive oil
Salt and pepper to season

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the spaghetti until al dente. In a separate pan add the olive oil and gently sweat the shallots and garlic. Add the chilli. On a gentle heat, stir in the crab meat and warm through. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and the parsley, season to taste and then toss with the cooked spaghetti.
