50ml extra virgin olive oil
Handful flat leaf parsley chopped finely
100g dried good quality spaghettini

Cook pasta till al dente and refresh under cold water to stop cooking, toss with a small amount of oil and put to side. Put water back on to boil.

Slice shallot, chilli and garlic to 2mm thickness. Add half oil to pan slowly bringing up heat, add shallots, chilli
and garlic and sweat for 1 minute or until translucent, being careful not to colour.

Add spanner crab meat and keep moving in pan to separate the crab meat as it’s cooking. Cook crab until meat has almost all turned white.

Refresh cooked pasta in boiling water, drain and add to pan. Toss through and mix well with remaining olive oil and parsley. Season to taste and serve immediately with a fresh squeeze of lemon.
