    I'mPat's Note:

    From todays local paper The West Australian. Fresh linguine is stressed as essential (usually can be found in the fridge section of the supermarket and only takes a couple of minutes to cook). Times are estimated.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 250 g crabmeat (2-3 blue manna crabs)
    • 4 zucchini (small)
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
    • 2 red chilies (deseeded and finely sliced down the length of the chilli)
    • salt (to taste)
    • pepper (to taste)
    • 500 g fresh linguine
    • 2 tablespoons parsley (roughly chopped)
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 lemon (cut into wedges, to serve)


    1. 1
      Pick through the crab meat to ensure there is no shell.
    2. 2
      Finely shred the zucchinis or either coarsely grate them or use a mandolin to slice.
    3. 3
      Add the olive oil to a wide pan and add the shredded zucchini and cook for a couple of minutes over a high heat until they collapse but have not coloured.
    4. 4
      Add the garlic and chillies and cook for a couple of minutes longer.
    5. 5
      Season well with the salt and pepper and fold through the crab meat.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile cook the linguine in salted water - this should not take more than 2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Lightly drain the linguine and then mix through the crab mixture.
    8. 8
      Fold through the parsley and lemon juice and then serve with the lemon wedges.

      This is truly a marvelous recipe. It is one of my husband's favorites. I LOVE recipes that look and taste like you spent hours on them but can actually be achieved in 1/2 hour or less. This is truly a winner. We like our pasta a little moister so I tossed the hot pasta with some butter before stirring into the crab mixture. Thanks so much for a great recipe.

      Enchanting, most definitely a *company special* dish, but really so quick and easy, you can make it on a normal busy weeknight. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly, except for using a "tomato-garlic" fresh linguine pasta, and used a lime wedge instead of a lemon, but other then that, stayed absolutely true to the recipe. This goes together so quickly, you need to make sure your water is already boiling and ready for the pasta :) Really a very special dish, that was so tasty I wish I had another helping. Enjoyed immensely~Made for *New Kids on the Block* April 2009
