Recipe: Chilli crab pasta

Loves a bit of seafood we do. This super simple pasta recipe has a nice heat to it with the chilli, but feels a touch luxurious with the crab. Plus, the crab is a great source of protein, Omega-3, Vitamin B2 and Phosphorus.

150g linguine
2x spring onions, chopped finely
½ red chilli, remove the seeds and chopped finely
200ml white wine
Grated zest and juice of ½ lemon
200g fresh white crab meat
50g wild rocket
Small bag of spinach
Rapeseed oil

Heat 1 tbsp of rapeseed oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat
Add the spring onions and the chilli and fry for a couple of minutes
In a separate pan, add the spinach and wilt
Pour the wine into the chilli and leave to bubble for a couple of minutes while it reduces
