Chilli Crab Spaghetti


  • 500g spaghetti
  • 60ml Squeaky Gate Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves sliced garlic
  • 500g spanner crab meat
  • 2 lime leaves, finely sliced
  • 2 birds eye chilies, finely sliced
  • pinch of salt


Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and begin to cook your spaghetti as per packet instructions, stirring occasionally.

In a medium non-stick fry pan, add the olive oil and warm gently on medium heat, add sliced garlic and stir with a wooden spoon to separate and make sure it does not burn in one spot.

When the garlic is starting to brown, add your crab meat and stir constantly to ensure it is cooking evenly in the olive oil. Sprinkle in your sliced lime leaf, chilli and season with salt to taste. Continue to cook until the crab has just turned white then take off the heat.

Strain your spaghetti and return to the pot, quickly pour the entire frypan of cooked crab & olive oil into the pot, and stir until all the spaghetti is covered with the aromatic olive oil and cooked crab.

Serve immediately and enjoy with family and friends!
