Notes about this recipe

    Insanely good - a real treasure of a recipe. I thought the sriracha might overpower the delicate crab but the flavours are beautifully balanced. The crab makes the dish feel very indulgent, but it's also delicious if you omit it for a cheaper veggie version. I was making this a bit too often for such a rich dish, so I now make a version where I omit the crab and swap the pasta for a combination of broccoli and cauliflower, for an indulgent midweek veggie main (though I'll still make the original for a weekend treat). I increase the amount of breadcrumbs for extra crunch and sometimes extend the cooking time to ensure the top is super crispy. So delicious.
