Ingredients (serves 2)

8 ounces linguine

Kosher salt

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/4 cup minced shallots

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1-2 teaspoon

1 1/2 tablespoons (or more) fresh lemon juice, divided, plus 2 teaspoons (packed) finely grated lemon zest, divided

Freshly ground black pepper

8 ounces cooked, shelled Dungeness crab, king crab, or jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over for shells

1/3 cup fresh mint leaves, gently torn, divided

Preparation

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta cooking liquid.

Melt 1 Tbsp. butter w/ 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots & stir until just soft, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and 1 chile and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

· Add 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice and 3 Tbsp. pasta cooking liquid to shallot mixture; add a pinch of pepper. Stir until liquid is almost evaporated, about 1 minute.

· Transfer pasta to skillet and add 1/2 cup reserved pasta cooking liquid. Increase heat to medium-high. Cook, tossing pasta or stirring with tongs, until liquid is almost evaporated and pasta becomes glossy, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining 3 Tbsp. butter, 1 Tbsp. oil, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. lemon zest, crab, half of mint, and more chile rounds, if desired.

· Stir pasta until butter melts and pasta is well coated, adding more pasta cooking liquid if dry. Divide between bowls; top with remaining 1 tsp. lemon zest and mint.
