Linguine al granchio e prosecco
Crab & Prosecco Linguine

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious crab recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my crab & prosecco linguine for you to enjoy.

Venice’s Rialto Fish Market is a vibrant, bustling place full of amazing fresh produce. I loved the atmosphere – all the locals out shopping and the fishmongers loudly calling out their catch of the day. These guys start work so early that they can often be seen enjoying their lunch with a glass of prosecco by 9am! So you can see where I found the inspiration for this recipe. Fresh crab is paired with the subtle flavour of prosecco to create a delicious celebratory dish; one that I was lucky enough to enjoy with all the beauty of Venice as my backdrop. If you prefer, use dry white wine instead of prosecco.

Step By Step

  1. Cook the linguine in a large pan of boiling, salted water until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, put the oil, garlic and chilli in a large, high-sided frying pan or sauté pan and place over a medium heat. Fry gently for about 1 minute, stirring continuously.
  3. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes or until slightly softened (you do not want them to turn mushy). Stir in the lemon zest. Season with salt.
  4. Increase the heat and pour in the prosecco. Bring to the boil and let it bubble until almost evaporated (about 1–2 minutes). Add the crab meat, olives and parsley and turn off the heat.
  5. When the linguine is cooked, remove it from the water using tongs or a spaghetti spoon and put it directly in the pan with the crab mixture without draining. Gently toss the pasta to ensure it is evenly coated. Serve immediately.

Zuppa di Verdure all’OrtolanaChunky Winter Vegetable and Cannellini Bean Soup

I created this soup when I was cooking for friends who are vegetarian and they all watched me and wrote down the recipe so I figured if they were impressed, hopefully you will be too. I have used six different kinds of vegetables to make the wholesome soup you’d expect but the bread, cheese and beans give it an even more rustic feel. It’s the perfect evening family meal or a great starter for friends...

Pizza Volante ai SalumiPizza Stuffed with Mascarpone, Salami Milano, Bresaola and Parma Ham

Meat, meat and more meat – I love this pizza. The use of three different hams with cheese is delicious. Making that first cut into the pizza and enjoying all the flavours oozing out is worth any amount of time you spent preparing it. Picture after a hard day’s work eating this dish with a large glass of red wine – it’s the perfect ending to any day. If you prefer, add in mozzarella to get that...

Strudel Italiano ClassicoClassic Italian Apple Strudel

This dessert is usually associated with Germany and Austria, but it is also often prepared in the northern regions of Italy. Although the classic strudel is made with apples, it can also be made with other fruit fillings such as cherries, peaches or pears, depending on the time of year and what fruit is in season. A fantastic dessert that can be eaten warm or cold, as a pudding or served at teatime....

Tagliatelle Alla Bolognese Di Mio NonnoTagliatelle With Bolognese

This is the real thing. The genuine ragù, as it is made in Bologna, is a mouthwatering meat sauce that includes different types of mince, including pork and beef, slowly cooked in a tomato and vegetable sauce. In Italy, this sauce is only ever served with broad, flat pasta such as tagliatelle or fettuccine and never with spaghetti.
