Ingredients
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds, crushed
  • 2 dried chilis, crumbled
  • About 14 ounces (400 grams) crabmeat
  • 1 lemon, zest grated and juiced
  • About 11.5 ounces (320 grams) linguine
Directions
  • Remove the tough, outer part and stalk of the fennel. Slice the bulb as finely as you can across the grain. Keep any of the green tops.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a thick-bottomed pan, add the garlic, fennel seeds, and chilis and cook to soften. Add the crab, zest and lemon juice, and season. Stir through, just to heat up the crab.

  • Cook the linguine in boiling salted water for 5 minutes, then add the fennel slices, and cook together until al dente. Drain the pasta, keeping a little of the water, and add to the crab mixture. Stir thoroughly to combine, adding a little of the reserved water to loosen the sauce, if necessary.

  • Serve with olive oil.
