Crab Spaghetti

Posted By Kerri


We bought a dressed crab yesterday at the same shop we bought the lamb and, not really knowing what to do with it, used it for crab spaghetti. We’ve done this a couple of times before with tinned crab and it’s tasty, quick and easy to throw together with just a few store-cupboard essentials (garlic, chilli, oil, crab, lemon juice, some green stuff and spaghetti). We were interested to try it with fresh crab to see how it compared.

The result? I think the version with the tinned crab wins. This was just a bit soggy and tasteless really, almost a waste of good spaghetti. Not sure if the crab wasn’t very good or if something went wrong in the cooking / assembling process.

    I’m now glad I didn’t get a dressed crab for the last crab spaghetti dish I posted. I nearly did but I was scared off by the price tag. Good thing too! If it had given me soggy tasteless pasta, I’d have been annoyed.

    The Alaskan crab claws we had earlier in the summer were brilliant, and a much more economical way of eating crab too I think.
