I first ate this type of dish some 12 years ago in a Seattle restaurant, came home and duplicated it. Over the years I have played with the ingredients and it is a family favourite.

The combination of flavours is simply awesome I am told by everyone who tries it, actually devours it! Being in the SF bay Area I am always tring to use crab in innovative ways other than salds and crab cakes. I make a Thai curry crab that is as good or better than Somboon in Bangkok which has been a favourite for many years. They let me in the kitchen I watched then I reduced the oil and played with it at home.

What a great twist on plain old penne pasta. The flavor combination is exciting and finishes extremely well with the Tomato Chutney.
