We decided to jump on the mod-sin cuisine bandwagon by using an iconic local dish – Chilli Crabs!
Who would have thought that it would be a perfect marriage between Singaporean Chilli crabs and pasta? The sweet, spicy and luscious sauce coats itself on every strand of linguine. In this case we used San Remo’s linguine, which has a nice thin, ribbon style to take in the crabby goodness.
A true gastronomic experience and a dish bound to impress your guests! San Remo’s linguine can be found around most supermarkets, so give it a go and impress your loved ones!
