Recipe Ingredients

  • salt
  • 350g dried linguine
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ to 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped

  • finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • small handful of fresh mint, chopped
  • large handful of rocket

Recipe Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and cook pasta according to the instructions. Drain the cooked pasta, reserving a cupful of the cooking water.
  2. Next, heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat, then fry the garlic and chilli for 10 seconds before adding the squid and capers. Fry for 1 minute to colour and cook the squid, then add the cooked pasta, lemon zest and juice, and the chopped mint and rocket. Toss to combine. Add a little of the reserved pasta water if the mixture is too dry. Season well and serve drizzled with a little extra olive oil, if you like.
