Crab, Peas & Chorizo

A Belated Happy New Year to you all!

On 1st January 2015, This was Dinner…

After first trying this Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe on 13th January 2014, I was hooked. I’ve checked the blog and am surprised to find that we only had it twice in 2014, I thought it was more.


  • Cut some chorizo into small pieces
  • Boil some frozen peas until just done then drain
  • Get pasta, lemon, fresh crab (brown & white meat) & seasoning ready


Cook the pasta.

Fry the chorizo until starting to crisp.

Add the crab meat, peas and a squeeze of lemon along with some seasoning.

Drain the pasta, reserving a little water. Mix well with the chorizo & crab mixture, adding a little water if required.

I had a spare avocado going so we sliced that and served it on top.

TWD_0101_Crab_ChorizoWhen we had this in June I actually used fresh peas, well worth it but difficult to achieve in January.

I loved these pasta shapes I bought from the deli.

On 2nd January 2014, This was Dinner

After visiting Pets at Home to look at beds for our February arrival (is it time yet?!!) we walked into town and had burgers at Table Table. Had we known a new place had opened called The Filling Station, we would have tried there!


Any thoughts?
