URL: http://www.weightwatchers.co.uk/food/rcp/index.aspx?recipeId=7019672



Ingredients

For the salsa:
4 spring onions, trimmed & finely sliced

2 portions tomatoes, de-seeded & sliced

1 fresh red chilli, de-seeded & diced

4 tablespoons lime, juice & zest of 1 lime

1 tablespoon fresh coriander, roughly chopped

 For the pasta:

110g dried pasta, e.g. fusilli

170g canned crab in brine, drained (or 8 seafood sticks, shredded)

1 tablespoon light salad cream

3 tablespoons 0% fat Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon Paprika

1 pinch of salt & freshly ground black pepper

 
Instructions:

·         Mix the salsa ingredients together and set aside to allow the flavours to develop.

·         Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 10–12 minutes or according to the packet instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.

·         Mix the crab, salad cream, yogurt, paprika and seasoning into the pasta. Serve the salsa alongside or mixed in if you prefer.

 
Thoughts: 
Mainly, don't use anywhere near that much lime juice! The instruction is really unclear but I thought it meant 4 tablespoons of juice. It becomes mainly lime at that point. Still very tasty, but very limey too! Definitely would make again.
