One Pot Wonders

By AMS, Jul 14 2016 02:22PM

We are all about giving you the most relaxing holiday and for me one of those things is having the luxury of deciding whether to eat in or out. The East Neuk is a foodie paradise there are so many michilin starred restaurants to choose from as well as some from the michilin guide.

While we love the chance to cook in a new-t0-us kitchen, the last thing we want to do on holiday is prepare a meal that creates a lot of extra work and dishes. That's why we gravitate toward one-pot meals. Not only do they cut down on cleanup time (which could be better spent enjoying family and friends or building sandcastles), but they are also easier to execute- even if you aren't familiar with the utensils and equipment you'll find everything you need in our Neuk Hoose holiday cottage kitchen to whip up your one pot wonder.

Here is the first in the series of one pot spectaculars!

All the meals will focus on readily available ingredients that can be cooked in one pot with a minimum of fuss so that means no weighing out of ingredients!

Crab Linguine

serves 2

2 dressed crab, either from the lobster shack at the harbour or from Green's the grocers.

Any pasta but I love it with Linguine or Spaghetti.

Double Cream or Creme Fraiche

2 Cloves of Garlic, squashed

1 Red Chilli, finely chopped

Squeeze of 1/2 a lemon

Some kind of green herb ideally Coriander, Parsley or Basil but Dill could work too.

-Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, drain reserving about an egg cups worth of the cooking water.

-Pour a good glug of the cream and the cooking water back into the now empty pasta pan, add the garlic and chilli and let this bubble away for 2-3 mins or until it has thickened and reduced a bit.

-Now add the squeeze of lemon and a wee splosh of white wine if you can bear to part with a bit, now add your crab and give it a good stir, then add the pasta and chopped herbs, salt and pepper, if it looks a bit dry you can add a splosh more cream or wine. Give it a taste and add more lemon, salt or pepper if needed.

-Finally pour yourself a large glass of dry white wine and enjoy!
