This seafood recipe is super speedy! You can be sitting down to a bowlful of steaming hot seafood pasta in just 12 minutes. It's a great way to use crab meat and makes the most of a classic flavour combination of sweet crab, fiery red chilli, zesty lemon and fragrant parsley. 

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Cook the pasta following the packet instructions. Add the peas for the final 2 minutes of cooking. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the chilli, spring onion, crab meat, lemon zest and juice, and gently warm through for 1-2 minutes; season. Add the pasta, peas and parsley to the crab mixture and toss. Divide between warmed bowls and top with Parmesan.
