Crab and Pasta with Butter and Parsley

imageedit_3_6391843110 (1)

I received a delivery today from a smoke house on the North Norfolk coast.  A dozen hardwood smoked kippers should tide me over in hot breakfasts for a while, and as an added treat I got four large Cromer crabs.

I enjoyed the first of these by making a simple, but tasty meal with whole wheat pasta, and the meat of one dressed crab.


  • Crab 1 dressed (about 150 -180 g / 5 to 6 ounces dressed)
  • Whole Wheat Pasta (or pasta of your choice) [approx 100 g]
  • Butter 2 Tbs
  • Fresh Parsley 1 tsp chopped (with stems removed)
  • Ground Black Pepper 1/4 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Water (for pasta)


Book the pasta according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  When it is finished, drain it, and add the butter, parsley, and pepper into the the warm pan.  As the butter melts mix in the pasta, and stir until it is coated in the butter mixture.  Place on a plate or bowl.  Flack the crab meat onto the top of the pasta, and season to your taste.  That’s it.
