Put a large pot of salted water on to boil for pasta.
In a large mortar and pestle pulverise peeled garlic cloves with salt, so that it makes a smooth paste. Then add chopped and seeded chilli and crush again until you have a gloriously red-tinged mixture.
Add crab meat, breaking it up gently with a fork, and pour in oil.
Zest lemon into the mortar and then add juice.
Using a fork, beat well to mix. Cook pasta, then drain and put in a warmed serving bowl.
Immediately pour over crab sauce and toss pasta. Throw in parsley and watercress and toss again.
