Enjoy a little bit of luxury with this simple crab linguine. You'll use the brown crab meat and Cornish clotted cream to create a decadent sauce. The dish is finished with a simple but impressive diced tomato garnish (known in the industry as 'concasse'), along with the white crab meat. Gorgeously simple & delicious!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Boil a kettle

Score a cross very lightly in the base of the tomatoes and add them to a large, heat-proof bowl

Cover them with boiled water until they're fully submerged and set them aside for 5 min

Tip: The boiling water loosens the tomatoes skins for easy peeling in step 4!

2 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Add the linguine to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 8 min or until cooked with a slight bite

While the pasta cooks, drain the tomatoes, then re-fill the bowl with ice-cold water and set them aside to cool

Tip: Use the Gousto ice packs to chill the water

Once the pasta is cooked, drain and reserve a cup of the starchy pasta water

3 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Re-boil a kettle

Chop the chives finely

Zest 1/2 [1] lemon (try to grate lightly with a micro-plane or sharp box grater and avoid grating the white pith, as this is very bitter!)

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 50ml [100ml] boiled water

4 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Drain then peel the skin off the tomatoes, starting from the cross

Chop the tomatoes into quarters, scoop out and discard the seeds and you'll end up with tomato 'petals'

Carefully and using a sharp knife, dice the tomato petals – this is your tomato concasse 

5 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil to large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a low heat

Once hot, add the chopped garlic, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and lemon zest and cook for 1 min until golden and aromatic

Tip: Watch the pan like a hawk to make sure the contents don't burn!

6 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Add the Chinese rice wine and cook for 1 min or until it's evaporated

Once evaporated, add the vegetable stock and cook for a further 2 min or until it's reduced down to a sauce 

7 767 - Creamy Crab Linguine With Lemon

Separate the white crab meat from the brown crab meat with a spoon (you'll use the white meat at the end!)

Remove the stock pan from the heat and stir in the brown crab meat, clotted cream, Dijon mustard, half the tomato concasse (the rest is used for later) and half of the chopped chives

Add the cooked linguine and the juice of half [1] lemon – this is your creamy crab linguine
