Mary Gilgallon


10 ounces of linguine
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
10 ounces crab meat, picked over
1/2 cup of *VODKA (uh oh)
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 fish bullion cube NOT SAFFRON
1 tablespoon of FRESH FLAT parsley

Cook linguine in 3 qts of boiling water with 2tbls salt until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain.
Meanwhile melt the butter in a skillet large enough to hold the linguine later. Add the crab; cook 3 minutes. Pour in the VODKA uh oh: cook until it evaporates.
Add salt: Remove crabmeat with slotted spoon. Add the cream to the skillet and bring to boil; cook until cream reduces by half (I never do that) about 2 minutes. Crumble in bullion cube and dissolve.
Fold the drained linguine into the cream sauce in the skillet and turn out into a serving platter. Top with crab meat and parsley. Serve HOT.
*Don't think there's a substitute for VODKA...another boyfriend?
