Lenten Friday cookalong.

OK. This is a great (and fast) recipe from one of my favorite chefs, Gordon Ramsay. This guy is a brilliant chef, albeit (not in THIS video) something of a profanity expert as well.

Linguine with Crab & Chile

Serves 4

100ml olive oil
1 medium-hot red chile [that looks like a longhorn chile], deseeded and finely chopped
1 fat garlic clove, finely chopped
3 pared strips of lemon zest, finely chopped
450g [+/- 1lb.] FRESH linguine (use half as much if all you vae is dried)
2 tbsp lemon juice, plus lemon wedges to serve
225g [+/- 1/2 lb.] white crab meat
2 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley

Method: How to make crab pasta with chile
1. Put the olive oil, chile, garlic and lemon zest into a small pan and put over a gentle heat until it begins to sizzle. Remove from the heat and set aside.

2. Bring a large saucepan of well-salted water to the boil. Add the linguine and cook for until al dente. [Fresh pasta cooks a LOT faster] Drain well and set aside.

3. Tip the chile and lemon mixture into the pan the pasta was in, then add the lemon juice and season. Heat until sizzling, then add the linguine and crab meat to the pan and toss gently over a medium heat to warm the crab through.

Add the parsley, season, and serve immediately with lemon wedges.

There ya go!
