Lemon Pasta + Alaskan King Crab

I can't believe how easy and delicious this pasta dish is.  It is now my favourite pasta dish (to eat and to cook).

With lemon and butter as the base, it's a no-brainer that the best accompaniment to this is seafood.  I chose Alaskan King Crab, with bacon bits as a garnish.  You could also use prawns, scallops or squid, but make sure they're as fresh as possible.

Lemon Pasta + Seafood
Serves 2.

150g angel hair pasta
crab meat, prawns, scallops or squid, enough for two
few rashes of bacon, chopped to small pieces

2 tbs butter
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp dill tips (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Boil pasta till al dente and cook seafood, then set aside.
In a skillet, fry bacon till crisp.  Remove bacon bits, keeping the bacon fat in the pan.
Add all other ingredients and heat through.
Add pasta and seafood into pan.  Stir till pasta is evenly coated.
Divide evenly onto serving plates and garnish with bacon bits.
