Spicy linguine with lemon

Chilli capsicum baccatum is a spicy, aromatic, and fragrant chili with a citrus scent. Produces 4-7 cm long downward facing peppers that are bright yellow when fully ripe. It leaves an excellent lemon flavor, making it ideal for pairing with white fish dishes.

  • 500 g of linguine
  • 10 tablespoons of oil
  • 4 dried chillies
  • 4 untreated lemons
  • sale
  • pepe


  1. Warm up the water for the pasta. Meanwhile, heat two tablespoons of oil in a pan, add the peppers, and let them soften for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, before removing them; they will have transferred the fragrance to the oil.
  2. Bring the water to a boil with the salt, then add the linguine and cook for about 7-8 minutes before draining. Place them in a pan with chili oil, add the grated peel of two lemons and six tablespoons of their juice strained through a sieve, and sauté for a few seconds, adding a tablespoon of cooking water if necessary.
  3. Transfer the linguine to a serving dish and season with freshly ground pepper to taste. Garnish with the remaining lemon wedges.
