Spicy Crab Linguine

Spicy Crab Linguine

1/2 pound linguine
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 2 teaspoons sambal oelek
1/2 pound cooked crab meat, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 pieces preserved lemon, pulp discarded and rind rinsed and finely chopped (1 tablespoon)
1/3 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons butter

Cook linguine in a pot of boiling salted water until al dente. 

Meanwhile, saute onion in oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring until softened.  Stir in sambal oelek and cook 1 minute more, then add crab meat.  Reduce heat to low and cook stirring frequently, just until crab meat is heated through.

Drain pasta, then add to skillet along with remaining ingredients and toss to coat well.
