The fresh flavours in this quick and easy pasta dish work wonders together, and make for a delicious meal. Serve with a glass of chilled white wine.
- For the pasta, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the sea salt and cook the linguine or spaghetti according to packet instructions, until al dente.
- In a large frying pan or wok heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, chilli and shallots and fry until softened, 2-3 minutes.
- Add the crab meat and cook for a further minute and then add the wine and simmer until most of the alcohol has evaporated, season with salt and pepper.
- Drain the pasta, reserving a few tablespoons of the pasta water. Add to the pan with the crab meat and stir in the parsley and basil. Mix together to coat evenly, adding a splash of reserved pasta water if the mixture is too dry. Season with freshly squeezed lemon juice and serve.
