    Was delicious but I recommend using white and brown meat for extra flavor and a sweet chilli sauce

    Why do you need to reserve some so the cooking water from the pasta?

  • Charlotte

    I did a variation of this recipe as I couldn't find any frozen crab meat so opted for crab and chilli pâté/mousse. I also added scallops and prawns. It was delicious, easy to make and the mousse acted as a sauce.

    Tried with 175g of King prawns as couldn't find crab meat but was still good. Also used 200g pasta for 2 people and a bit more oil so it wasn't too dry.

  • Sarah

    Quick and easy. Wasn't bowled over enough to want to make again
