Mix the flour with the semolina and crack in the eggs, along with a good pinch of salt and the cracked black pepper.
Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and springy then rest it in the fridge for an hour.
Boil a large pot of water. Roll the pasta out into sheets, ending at about 2mm thick. Cut the sheets into very thin strips to make the linguine.
Finely dice the shallot, garlic, chilli and parsley.
Heat the butter in a large frying pan and chuck in the prawns. Let them colour on both sides before removing to a plate lined with kitchen towel.
Throw the shallot, garlic and chilli into the same pan with a little butter to let them soften.
Chuck in the peas and the crab meat and toss together, then season with salt and pepper. Pour in the white wine and let it bubble and reduce.
Cook the tagliatelle for a 2-3 minutes, then drain and toss with the crab.
Place the prawns on top of the pasta. Serve the linguine with the prawns and a lemon wedge. Serves 2
