Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

King crab

1
To begin, burn the chillies on an open flame to blister the skins, then seal in a plastic bag and leave to sweat for 15 minutes. Peel off the burnt skins, cut the chillies open and scrape out the seeds. Chop the remaining flesh finely
2
Bring a large pan of water to the boil with 1 tablespoon of salt. Once boiling, add the linguine and bring back to the boil, ensuring you stir the pasta every couple of minutes to stop it sticking together
3
Meanwhile, melt half of the butter in a large pan and add the chilli flesh, followed by the white king crab meat. Shake to incorporate then remove from the heat
4
Once cooked, drain the linguine from the water, reserving a cup of the cooking water. Stir the linguine into the crab and chilli mix, then return to a high heat
5
Stir well to combine, then add the brown crab meat, remaining butter and the chopped mint. Toss and stir well to combine, adding a dash or 2 of the linguine cooking water to create a sauce to coat the pasta
6
Finish with some lemon juice, salt and pepper, plus more chilli if desired. Garnish with some shredded mint and serve immediately
