  1. First make the cream. Mix together the crème fraiche, wasabi, lime zest and juice, and leave to the side.
  2. Toast sesame seeds in a small pan over a medium heat, leave to the side.
  3. Carefully mix the crab, lemon juice, lemon zest, mint and dill with a good pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Taste and add more seasoning if needed.
  4. To serve put a dollop of the cream mixture on a plate and spread evenly to cover the most of the bottom of the plate, then sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over. Place a few leaves in the middle, radish slices and beetroot if using, then a spoonful of the crab mixture. Carefully layer up with a few more leaves, crab and decoration. Finish with a carful drizzle of olive oil.
