"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" LdV

Since I have found this marvelous market at Bute street in South Kensington (a friend of a friend who is a fisherman, sells his fishery catch from Dorset just the day after here...), I make enormous fish feast during the week-end! And without any doubt, my friends are very happy when invited... I wanted to realize a dish with the amazing gorgeous crab I just bought but without cooking it : what a shame to have a crab so fresh and wish to cook it don't you think so?
I have eaten in the South of France, a lovely crab tiramisu, so it was a nice challenge to try to recreate it (in a very easy-peasy way of course...), for my friends. So yummy, I will do it as a snack for myself only...

Wine pairing : Saint-Véran (White) from Burgundy.

A quick glance in your kitchen...
