  • 200g spaghetti, or linguine
  • 1 knob salted butter
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 fresh chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 100g asparagus tips
  • 150g crab meat
  • 2 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, zest and juice


  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat the butter and oil in a frying pan big enough to hold the pasta.
  2. Add the chilli and garlic, then the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes, or until the asparagus starts to soften.
  3. Add the crab meat to heat through, then remove from the hob.
  4. When the pasta is ready, drain (reserving a little cooking water) and add to the asparagus pan. Place back on the heat, add the chives, lemon zest and juice and toss well, adding a little of the pasta water if needed. Season and serve with an extra glug of oil.
