Crab & Mushroom Linguine.

Hey Food Lovers!

In todays post I don’t have the steps included, just the finished product. I was hungry and tired with a lot to do, so I didn’t have time to take pictures in-between. Also, this was a see what you have in the fridge and freestyle situation. But it turned out so good, so I have decided to blog about my meal. Find my recipe below πŸ™‚

Ingredients

Olive Oil

Salt

Linguine

2 blue crab bodies & legs

handful fresh parsley leaves

6 fresh whole mushrooms

Crab Water

1 garlic clove

2 tbsp butter

Crushed Peppers

2 tsp tomato puree

Preparation

In a pot, boil some linguine with one cup of water, drops of olive oil and some salt to season. While your linguine is boiling, remove meat from crab body(leaving the crab legs) and set aside. Chop garlic clove and peel skin off mushrooms (leave whole). In a pan, melt butter and fry the garlic until golden brown, then add in mushrooms and let simmer for a few seconds. While you do that, blend handful of parsley with about 1/4cup of water. Add your blended parsley in mushroom. Let boil for a few seconds and then mix in tomato puree and add some crab water. Your linguine should be ready by now. Drain linguine and add into the mushroom in tomato and parsley sauce. Mix together and let simmer for about a minute. Toss in crab meat and legs and mix together. Drizzle with crushed peppers. You can also add some grated cheese once served on your plate.

This recipe is best served hot.

I liked this dish, because it was quick and easy to make. I didn’t have to spend as much time in the kitchen as I usually do. The next time I make this though, I think i’ll add in an extra ingredient (half and half or heavy cream). This will help me get more sauce, and would give a much sweeter taste. I did not have any at home. For those of you who like more sauce, adding this extra ingredient would benefit you. You can also add in some shrimps and extra seafood to take it the extra mile πŸ˜‰ Either way, with or without, I liked this a lot and this is just a base. This recipe can be developed so much more.

If you do try this out, let me know how it goes and feel free to drop comments.

  1. I love this. Can the linguine be replaced with regular spaghetti?
